7/12/18 I completed this hike beginning and ending at the Lincoln Woods Visitor Center, an 18-mile out and back hike. The approach is long and gradual, gaining only 1450 feet in the first 8 miles. The final section is Owl's Head Path. The junction where you leave Lincoln Brook Trail to get on the path was marked by a small cairn (about a foot high), which may not always be there. See the White Mountain Guide 30th edition for a description of the junctions' location. Once on the Path, you'll soon begin to ascend the Slide. This is a very strenuous rock climb, gaining 1,450 feet in 8/10 of a mile. Once on the summit area, you may see a small cairn marking the "old" summit. Continue on trail for 2/10 of a mile. The new, true summit (20 feet higher than was previously thought to be the summit)was unmarked the day of my hike, but if you get to the end of the trail, you've reached it.

Latest submitted climbing notes
Parking along Mount Jukes Track for easy access to start climbing.
There are other tracks that are closer to Mt. Owen but may require a 4wd depending on the weather and how maintained the dirt roads are.
I have found following Allan's Creek up a fair way of Mt. Darwin to be helpful , though there are easier ways depending on where you start from.
Average fitness required as the hike can be quite difficult at times.
Mt. Sorell is a great climb with a medium difficulty.
It is best to climb during summer to avoid the rainy winter season of Tasmania.
Take enough gear for a two to three day hike in case the weather turns bad and be prepared to get your feet wet, depending on the month.
Hiking with someone is also recommended due to the terrain.
Live weather observations from meteo stations
For each mountain we keep a list of nearby meteo stations reporting current weather observations many times per day. Gather all available weather information before heading out to the mountains for climbing, walking, mountaineering or any other outdoor pursuit.
