Wilder Trails Kunanyi-Wellington Loop

Size Guide
Title :

Legend! Well done! You are coming to collect your kunanyi-Wellington Loop reward and we hope you had a wildly playful day on the kunanyi trails. Former Tasmanian resident, Jahn Pahwa instigated this kunanyi-Wellington Loop back in 2016. Thanks to Jahn's support and generosity, this 24.5km route was incorporated into our Wilder Trails community project so that people such as yourself could enjoy the mountain challenge. Please proudly show off this badge and tell all your friends, family and trail community to give the kunanyi-Wellington Loop a try. We hope you will enjoy some of our other Wilder Trails soon!
