There are tonnes of great tracks on the mountain but I'll try to limit myself to blogging 3 or 4 good solid walks. Yesterday I walked the Pinnicle track which links to the Organ Pipes track, which then drops down to Hunters Track and returns via the Lenah Valley track. It sounds more complicated than it was. Once again it's undulating but most of the uphill is done in the first 30 minutes. The views up and down are fantastic and it took me almost exactly 2 hours including some drinks and photo stops.
I'll have to remember to do this walk around Christmas time again next year as there were tonnes of flowers out so it was even nicer than usual.

This is a steep walk that goes from Suicide Bend in Taroona, up to the Mt Nelson Signal Station and back. Walked briskly with only minimum time taken to pause and cough out a lung, it can be done in a shade under 55 minutes. If you run it you should try and get to the top in under 20 minutes if you want to be respectable. When I was young I could do it in like 7 minutes. or something like that - my memory is a little hazy.
