Estimated Times to Run







The whole trail is basically an out & back with the option of adding a quick detour via p1300m on the way up.

From the carpark follow the fenceline towards the mountain. Where it turns right (south) follow it on the western side until you hit the 4WD farm road. From there you can't get lost, just follow this road up the mountain, staying on the edge of the pine plantation. Towards the top of this plantation at the road fork, either stay left and carry on to the main summit, or turn right and follow that road to the ridge, then heading north along the broad ridge crossing p1300m, until the road joins the main one again.

Return the same way.

This trail includes the peak Mid Dome.
