Ben Nevis track

Postby billshep » Wed 24 Jan, 2018 4:01 pm

I have signposted the Ben Nevis track at the junction of Telopea Road and Schulhof's Road some 13 kms from Upper Blessington and also at the start of the walking track. I cleared the road and the lower section of the track which was very overgrown. I did not have time or energy left in the heat to do much on the plateau section but this is well cairned. No water at all up there in the drought, apart from a tiny soak where the route is close to the creek near the plateau. Hopefully the local walking clubs will do a bit to keep this route open, it was fairly neglected. A great hill with fine views.

Thanks for this Bill, I was up that way last year and some extra signposting to the trackhead would have simplified life nicely. As you say a great hill with fabulous views
