5 H - Day Walk
North of Wollangambie River/ Crater
This walk is to the region north of Wollangambie River, and to the north west of Wollangambie Crater (WC). The track starts as if heading to WC then heads north across the river. For a short distance we join a fire trail and head south down a ridge towards WC, find a way through the cliffs and cut across the river and head back up to the return trail from WC. A small amount of scrambling is required. This is a big walk and Joe Dunn reckons it as one of the better ones we have done. Fitness is required as it is a 22 km walk with 1000 m ascent. Last time it took us 9 hrs.
