The Old Hobartian Track seems to one of those trails that is rarely walked and rarely written about. It’s a shame too, as it provides one of the most challenging hiking experiences within Wellington Park. The trail leaves from Lenah Valley Road, zigzagging its way up to Pinnacle Road via the Lost World.

The trial isn’t for the faint hearted. Though only 3.5km to the summit, a climb of 950m is grudgingly scaled over that distance. Brilliant views of the Derwent River and Northern Suburbs are on offer at the top, along with the breath-taking dolerite cliffs of the Lost World.
