Starting at the base of the hill, Tanner Rd, follow the well marked track up the hill. It heads up past a water fountain (handy spot to fill up if you are planning on going further afield). You then pass by the Water Treatment station (to the hight hand side of the buildings) and head in a lovely section of native bush. You wind your way up through this and then break out onto the open areas. Continue heading forward until you reach the junction signpost where you can also head to Swampy Summit if you choose. Take a left here and head towards Flagstaff as you wind around the closest hill. Continue on, you know you've reached Flagstaff when you reach the plaque/survey mark at the top. Then it's a nice gentle meander back down, or a blistering quad-smashing speed back down, either way will get you back to your car.
