Herringback

Wednesday 23rd July 2014

Herringback Summit
This was the second walk of the day. The start is reached by turning off the Huon Highway at Vinces Saddle into Vinces Saddle Road and following for about 3.0 kms. to Halls Track. Turn right into Halls Track and immediately park. Note The track passes through private property to communications towers on the summit and walkers are welcome as long as they respect the place.
I set off around a locked gate and up the road through cattle paddocks. There were plenty of cattle around but they more or less ignored me as I walked past. I went through an electric fence gate and two more gates as I climbed up. This section was a gentle climb but once I came to a sign which said "only 4Wd from here" it became steeper and steeper as I neared the summit. When I did arrive there were a couple of guys working on the first tower. I walked over to the second tower and climbed up on to a small concrete building where there were great views. I then simply returned to the car the same way.
An easy short walk and a little steep up near the top with good scenery.
Distance: 4.5 kms.
Time: 1'23"
Ascent: 306 metres
