Walk

No bookings required for joint club Wednesday Walks

No, not that one. If you were walking last century, you may have been to Red Hill at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. There was a track which was obliterated in the 2003 bushfires and never reestablished. We’ll walk the western side of the loop, which includes a delightful creek line. From Mountain Creek car park, walk up the Camelback Fire Trail, turn onto Spur 1 Fire Trail and drop down through the bush. There is quality scrub (wattle regrowth, not shrubs), but we can take the less than 3km descent route very slowly. Plenty of shin high star pickets to bang into. Gaiters and scrub gloves. Around 5km and 200vm. Grading CBC S/R, BBC M(8), NPA 1/AD. If more is required, we can do the scenic Cascade Track (around 3km and 50vm) and the Congwarra Trail (around 4km and 50vm). Home in time for a late lunch and cooler afternoon.

Leader: John Evans jevansact@gmail.com 0417436877

Weather: will update Sunday

Meet at 8.30am in the Lanyon Marketplace car park, up from Maccas and nearest to Tharwa Drive. Shared transport cost $28 per vehicle of 4.
