Track Notes

So good to see Phillip S back walking and leading. This was a birthday walk more suitable for an old codger. Some Canberra Centenary Trail signage and guideposts in place since our last wander in this area on 19 Oct 13. A very pleasant stroll on Black Mountain with good company in the evening of a hot day. Plenty of young things running up and down the tracks. Where are all the Canberra obese - on their couches I guess.


Distance: 4.3km Climb: 240m. Time: 6.30 - 7.45pm (1hr 15 mins).

Grading: S/E; E(4)
