In this particular case the hikers would have started their walk at a 
point where hundreds of tourists a day set out to the Three Sisters. I 
live two promontories east and I can be at the bottom of the valley in 30-
40 minutes from my back door. Mt Solitary doesn't look that far away.

Here's a nice  walk. (The Queen Victoria Hospital is about 3k past my 
front door.)
