Leader Jeff B. From the car park at Smokers Gap, on the Corin Dam Rd, we use the Square Rock walking track to do the steepest part of the climb. Leaving the track before Smokers Flat, we head NE then E past granite boulders to the 1457m summit of the hill. We then head SE, cross Smokers Trail at its big bend, and walk N along a ridge before joining a track descending to the cars. Pace will be slow to moderate, and the altitude is 1200-1450m so it will be cooler than Canberra.

Bilby profile of people booking for this walk must include #full name,*phone, *email, *street address, vehicle and emergency contact details. (Leader will share # with all participants * with others in same car.)
