Geocache Description:

A stunning 360 degree of the ACT & NSW awaits you from an elevation of 1857m. Drive to Piccadilly circus, Bulls Head, Mt. Franklin & Mt. Ginini. Park at the lower carpark at Mt. Ginini area - LOCKED gate. - Wilderness area. Make a whole day of it - enjoy the time, a great area, don't rush it. From the locked gate at the carpark, walk on the old fire trail for about 5km walking distance to Pryor's hut. Continue for another 10-15 mins. Then at a sharp left turn (U turn) in the track, where it crosses a small flowing creek, the walking trail is the narrow trail up the mountain, on the right. Coords at this point are S 35 34.307, E 148 47.010 . The walking trail up is clear and easy, but relatively steep.

The big mountain you are heading up is the big flat topped one you can see from most of Canberra. Keep to the trail - it will take you to the southern end of the top.

Once up there - go for it, and admire the views.

: Roads are closed if Total fire ban, or much snow.
: At this altitude, it is cool/cold - be prepared.
: Please take care on the winding narrow dirt roads, They are public roads and can be busy, they are slippery when wet or snowy.

Intrepid placers of the geocache are mtbikeroz, Aubushee, No-Name (KW). (Sat. 1 December 2001)(AEST)
