At 1380m Mount Tennent is the first mountain you see when heading to Namadgi! It’s a great mountain, and I think that all Canberran’s should climb it at least once! It offers a great experience, and fantastic views! So, if you haven’t been up, and need a little more incentive - here you go!
Being a 7km hike/ride (14km return) – and about 700m worth of climb - it is not trivial - but in my book - that equals lots of fun! And all on a well-formed fire trail! (Well, except for some tiny off track bits to find the caches). Just make sure you bring plenty of water, and some warm cloths!
It seems that trails are all the rage at the moment! What? 1 smiley for climbing Mt Tennent not enough? Certainly it was in the old days! – In fact, today as I went up there, there were MANY people on this mountain (more than 20), climbing it for no smiley’s at all! - Just for the views! But of course you will have to continue another 180 metres past #21 to get those
Please note, there is no pen in the cache - please BYO pen.
