The 9km medium graded Ice House loop track is perhaps the best day walk available on the southern side of Mount Wellington (Kunanyi). Incorporating charming views of Hobart, multiple terrain types and occasional challenging conditions there is enough to keep walkers of all levels excited. Leaving from The Springs, the trail climbs the Zig Zag Track to the summit of Mount Wellington before descending the southern face via the Ice House Track.

No matter what time of year, warm and waterproof clothing is recommended for this walk as weather towards the summit is known to change quickly.
