George Peak Vertical Kilometer Climb

This is sure to get your heart racing. The hike (or run) starts and finishes at the top of Arbour Road, Glen Barrie, George.

A 1000m ascent to George peak over a relatively short 4 kilometers.

On your way up you will pass a steel cross that lights up at night. After the cross the trails climbs steep and some scrambling is required. Once you reach George Peak we suggest you use the circular route to get back to the start.

Parking is available at the Ground Zero Trail Park.
