Hard track
Starting from the main car park at the end of Ben Lomond Road, Ben Lomond National Park, this walk leads visitors from the alpine village to join the steeper and more challenging Summit Pass Track. This easy to moderate walk follows a well-built and well-signposted track through a mixture of alpine vegetation and rock scree. Ben Lomond has a stark, treeless landscape that is visible from much of Tasmania's north. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
