Lithgow and Beyond 2015

Activity Description:

This is a grade four trip containing a variety of terrain including rock steps, gutters, mud, and water crossings. The area abounds with history and fantastic views across Pagoda rock formations. Two trip leaders Glen Watts and Grahame Booth leading 5 vehicles each will do reverse days on day 2 and 3 reconvening each night to discuss their day during happy hour or at the nearby pub. This will allow more tracks to be driven and at a better pace.

Comment: This trip will encounter some steep rutted trails, rock steps and mud. There will be a number of water crossings through Turon National Park at Varying Depths (blinds may be required) Trailers are allowed as we will be doing a base camp, however anyone taking a trailer must consult with the trip leader first as there are a number of creek crossings and rutted trails on the way into camp.
