Trestle Mountain

Saturday 15th July 2017

Trestle Mountain
Today's walk was to Trestle Mountain. The route taken this time was up from Myrtle Forest to Collins Cap Trail, along to East West Trail and then up to the summit and return the same way. The fire trails were icy, as was the ascent of the mountain, but the weather was almost perfect. The temperature ranged between 2 and 5 degrees for most of the walk and we had a minuscule dusting of snow on the way back.
A really enjoyable walk on a good day.
Distance: 11.1 kms.
Time: 5'14"
Ascent: 785 metres

  1. It looks stunning Denis, especially with the snow! Wish I had been there for it. There's no snow here on the mountains around Canberra yet. No walk statistics this time?

    1. It was good, Chris and the snow does make it interesting. No stats this time as I have done the walk a few times before but just for you I have added some.
