Women’s ACT Free Meet Up Hike – Saturday 19th September
This free Women Want Adventure meet up is here to help you spend more time outdoors with like-minded women. It’s often hard to find time to connect with friends, nature and split attention between work, kids, piles of laundry and Zoom meetings. Fortunately, there’s a solution! Spend the morning with us as you walk the One Tree Hill Summit Trail 9:00am – 12:00pm. The One Tree Hill Trail takes you from Hall Village along part of the Centenary Trail to One Tree Hill Summit Lookout. It’s a steady climb (not too steep) with sturdy steps. As you reach the summit, there are impressive views looking back towards Canberra. A lot of the walk is exposed as it runs through grazing land, so bring your hat. Register Interest
