A challenging climb to the summit of kunanyi / Mount Wellington and back, with great views on a clear day.
The sound of running water is your constant companion as you follow upstream beside New Town Rivulet. After the track emerges onto Pinnacle Road, there are two section of road walking linked by the Panorama Track to reach the (often windy!) summit.
From here, the walk descends via the aptly named Zig Zag Track before the more gently graded Pinnacle Track brings you to The Springs. From here, the Lenah Valley Track loops back to your starting point. Along the way take time to explore Sphinx Rock, Rock, Lone and Junction cabins and New Town Falls.
