Snake Mount

Thursday 3 September 2020

Soon after arriving at the start of the walk a chap wondered over to tell us that it was fine to go through the gate, which was most pleasant of him as we were wondering where the correct start was.

It was steep dry slope country with attractive eucalypts arriving at a green open area just before the top. Soon after the summit cairn of Snake Mount was reached, taking about 1:15 for the 1.9k. At various spots on the way, as well as on top, we stopped to take in the views over the Derwent and surrounds.
