Black Mountain Walk

https://goo.gl/maps/gi3rc . Suggesting a slightly later start time for this walk to take advantage of the warm sun (hopefully) on the day. This is a pretty strait forward walk of around 3.3kms which should take around 50mins to the top at a steady pace. Its steep in parts as you would expect from this hill with some surfaces being loose so shoes with good tread is suggested. The actual trail we take may vary on the day.

Once at the top we have the option of paying $7.50 (adult) to enter Telstra Tower for a look around and coffee, or alternatively bring a thermos – happy for the group to decide.

Access to Frith Road via Barry Drive.

    thanks Cassandra for todays walk, it was great. I have posted up a "suggested" walk for Coolemon Ridge Loop for next Sunday 8am - but I need some people to like it to get it going...

    Hi guys, I've been really ill so I'll be going slow. Hopefully some others will like a leisurely pace as well. If I'm still too sick to go I'll update my RSVP on Sat.

    • Cassandra

      Great stuff Jen! I'm aware of another of our walkers who is bringing a voucher so encourage all others to bring along as well if you have them.

    Doug, I guess that spring would be a good time!

  • Tony K.

    Sundays are difficult for us, please do this walk again on a Saturday. :-)

    • Doug F.

      When do you want to organise it? BTW, while there is no 'rule' that says we walk on Sunday, that has been the pattern for this group over the past couple of years. You might want to check out other Meetup groups that regularly walk on Saturdays, or check other groups on http://www.canwalk.or...­ for the same thing. AussieWalks has recently been walking fortnightly on a Saturday, rather than their previous monthly pattern. I'm sure you will find others.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
