Square Rock and Smoker's Trail

Trip type: 
Bushwalking
Difficulty: 
Medium
Start date: 
Tuesday, 15 September 2020 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

Need a study break or just some time outdoors? Come along for a day trip in Namadgi.

The Plan:

Leave ANU Sport at 9am and drive to Smoker's Gap carpark. We will walk the Smoker's Trail/Square Rock loop, stopping for lunch at some point. I have walked both trails, but not together. I estimate we will be back at ANU by 4pm. 

Smoker's Trail is a management trail/fire road. The Square Rock section of the walk is a well trodden trail. Some sections of the walk are steep, but we will walk at a pace everyone is comfortable with. This trip is suitable for beginners, but please let me know your previous hiking experience when you sign up.

Please bring:

  • Sturdy shoes you're comfortable walking all day in
  • Weather appropriate clothes
  • Sunscreen
  • Lunch and snacks
  • Min 1L of water

Numbers will depend on how many cars are available. Please indicate if you are willing to drive when you sign up. Please also indicate if you have the COVID Safe app.

There will be no pre-trip. I will send out a confirmation email to trip participants prior to the trip to confirm and organise carpooling. 

Please contact me if you have any questions.
