Event description
A challenging, and rewarding hike up to Mt Gingera via the Stockyard Spur.

About this Event

Let's keep moving through winter, get and keep hiking fit with our ATICA Winter Warmer Walkies.

If you enjoy a day out in nature, a challenge, and the feeling of being on top of the world, this hike is for you!

Mt Gingera is situated in the Namadgi NP. There are two options for this hike, with this being the harder and longer of the two.

This hike will see us climb the summit of Mt Gingera the second tallest mountain in he ACT, where we will be rewarded with spectacular views and an incredible sense of achievement. We may even be lucky to walk in snow.

The first few km's are a steep upward climb, and can be quite testing not to mention we have to come back down at the end.

This hike is suitable for anyone who has hiked with me before, or has some hiking experience, a reasonable level of fitness and a sense of adventure.

Parts of this trail are along management and fire trails that make hiking a little easier. But being winter, there may be quite a bit of snow around (I hope) and that can present its own challenges as it can get slippery, slushy, wet and require deeper footsteps to be taken.

If you are interested but feel unsure about whether or not this hike is something you can do, please get in touch with me. I would much rather you get out and enjoy a day in nature, challenge yourself and achieve new things. You have my support and encouragement the whole way.

It is cold. Good socks: merino wool or something similar to keep your tootsies warm, gloves, neck sock, and head bands are all things that can help with keeping comfortable.

Gaiters would be a good accessory for this hike and an extra layer for the summit as it can get quite cool and windy up there.


I will update the weather forecast the day before just to ensure we can all be prepared. It is best to layer dress. It's easier to de-layer and to warm up/cool down and layers are easier to carry in your back pack.

The day will only be cancelled if the weather looks really bad and or dangerous.

I will also be in touch with everyone coming via both the Wilderness Wanderer's FB group and email to confirm any last minute details.
