Start your walk at the Mount Zero Picnic Ground and follow the signage. You will be rewarded along the way with rocky outcrops, fern gullies, eucalyptus trees and the beautiful naturally occurring Stapylton amphitheatre.
You will need to scramble a few rocks to reach the summit, but once at the top, you will be rewarded with magnificent views. Bring a picnic lunch and relax at the summit before retracing your steps back down to the Mt. Zero Picnic Ground.
There are no facilities here, so make sure to bring your own water and wear appropriate hiking or walking shoes, as well as bring a jumper or jacket for the cooler months.
