Trestle Traverse

  Thursday 1 December 2022


This was not the conventional Trestle Mountain walk, as it included the traverse of the summit ridge and descended by way of Fools Tarn.  The return was along the fire trail, which especially the first part below Trestle was most colourful with numerous plants in flower. it a short diversion to a small valley of pineapple grass.

The walk was 15k and took 8 hours.
