Conical Hill - Larch
|How to get there:||starting from the "Banana House" on the Village Green in the centre of Hanmer Springs.|
|Description of walk:||This starts at the northern (top) end of Conical Hill Road. Steep at first, this broad track steadily climbs to the summit of Conical Hill (550m) with its wide views over the Hanmer Basin and encircling mountains.
An interesting return can be made by taking the Majuba Track about half-way down, that leads through a recently logged area that has been replanted in Douglas Fir and Larch, and then on to the Woodland Ponds with their waterfowl.
You can complete the circular walk by taking the track through the Larch Reserve to Rutherford Crescent.
