North to South, the trail is little more than brushed out double track, but it's also easily one of the most direct and sustained climbs at MacP (Very Difficult). Coming from the other way it's a great way to access TNT from the Black Forest & Stimulus Loop areas of Macpherson. Since 2014, the new climbing option has made the upper section to TNT less frantic, but all the intensity still remains. Either way, at the top you've presently got one of the best views Macpherson has to offer.

Access Info

Upper Ridge Walk and the entire TNT hillside above the Main Loop ski trail, is slated to be logged the summer of 2016. Trail closures will be in effect, see the 'LINKS' area below for the latest updates on access etc.

Lots of mud at the start near Black Forest, but other than that, it's good to go.
