My time to traverse the 10 km of Wesley Ridge was 6.5 hours with rests and view time included

Trail is 10 km across the ridge and down to the tracks again.

the true summit have no view, it is cover with trees. you find a old tower site, with wood piled up. a. log book can be found here at this summit. other log book at the lower view points. The Wesley Ridge trail is in good condition. The trail does become kind of hard to follow in spots, just look for the remains of the old making tape and you should have no problem.

The red track in the maps is the quads track as its weave with way along side the hiking trails
the Dark purple track is the railway and the light purple on the right is the short QVR trail.
the Green track is the path through Cathedral Grove Park
Cathedral Grove is rather a busy spot, so quick drop off or pick up only.
If you need to park, head down the highway a bit 500m to N49 17.371 W124 40.079 Chalet Rd
 and park on the side out of the way.
