Starting at the bottom of the Pineapple Track on Tanner Rd you head up the hill following Pineapple. Once at the top, take a right hand detour following the signposting towards Swampy Summit. Follow the 4WD track and road up to Swampy Summit and around the dopper radar (big structure at top). Follow the track from the Swamp Ridge route around through to Green Hill. Get there, soak up the views and then head back!

Located at the top end of Ross Creek area. If you head up Malvern Ave from town and then up Fulton Rd, the small car parking area is just at the top corner of the road.
Only a small area to park off the road. Residential streets around area, so facilities to park a little further away if needed.
Windproof jacket, Beanie/thermal headwear, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.
Some water early on in the Pineapple Track, a wee fountain before you get to the water treatment plant.
Can be pretty exposed up on the ridges in winter, with snow/ice a possibility.
Lots of wood logs placed on Swampy Ridge section of track to help maintain it, but have to be careful of footing.
