A few months ago, Liz and I hiked Joyners Ridge Road in D’Aguilar National Park. Today we decided to turn the “tough-o-meter” dial a bit harder, and hiked Lightline Road and Cabbage Tree Range Road.
It started out innocuously enough, with a long descent along Lightline Road and Job 6 Road. Job 6 Road? Who ever heard of naming a road after a book of the bible that talks about anguish and misery? (Is it really that steep?) Or was it the next job on the sheet after Job 5 when the forestry people were building roads?
All up 17km with over 1,000m ascent, and 3100 cal. About 7.5 out of 10 on the tough-o-meter, mostly because of the climb up Cabbage Tree Range Road.
Max elevation: 565 m
Min elevation: 63 m
Total climbing: 1129 m
Total descent: -1120 m
Average speed: 4.97 km/h
Total time: 04:15:57
