Sat map showing the trail.
I have posted many times before about Mt Banks and its a favorite of mine for walks and mountain bike rides. The views are stunning and the tracks and trails are easy and well defined in the main.
There are also less defined trails, that lead to wonderful lookout points and wander deep into gullies.

For the inexperieinced I would strongly suggest sticking to the main fire trails, (its easy to get lost), and respect the cliff edges as its a loooong way down.
My ankle felt fine and I thought in order to get fit again another walk was in order. I spent 2 hours on the trails and enjoyed the bird life, some I had not seen before which was a thrill. A simple lunch of chicken and cheese sandwiches, banana and an apple kept the fuel levels up in the 11c conditions.
All in all a fantastic way of spending a few hours.
