Kuringgai Billabong , Nth Turrumurra
Saturday 28th November, 6am

HIKEFit Leader : Sonia

REPEATED SAT and SUN

This is a 20KM Hike in the KuringGai National park. We will meet at 6am at the end of Grosvenor street in North Wahroonga, A nice early start to avoid the heat .
We take the Gibberagong track through to Bobbin Head. We will have our first stop at Bobbin Head about 2hrs in, where we should be ready for a coffee, or even a muffin !!
Please bring plenty of snacks as we will be burning through significant calories and will need refuelling. ...

We then head to the Sphinx following the Cowan creek, which means lots of steps to the 14km mark. At this point if you wish to leave the hike we can prearrange car pooling for a car drop off point. Otherwise join me as we continue on the last 6km heading back down into the national park to find our way back to the Gibberagong track to our cars via a few more steps !!!

This is a fabulous hike for anyone about to go on a trek, and vital to anyone joining our Mt Kosciusko Trek on Dec 11th. The hike will be strenuous with plenty of hills climb, but manageable. I would recommend the use of POLES.

If we average 3.5KM/hr then we need to allow 5 hours. We will start at 6am and plan to have you back in your cars by 11am

NEPAL BREIFING

HIKE COACH : SONIA

Which side of Nepal is better? is the question I am often asked
I also hear "I don't want to do EBC .." .. Nepal is "too busy"

Tonight's Zoom Call is to debunk that and consider the best hike for 2021.
Would you like to go the Annapurna Region and see the FISHTAIL Mountain up close
or
Would you like to trek on the Everest Side, experiencing a little higher altitude and a more difficult hike and admiring the beauty of Ama Dablam and Everest

Lets consider the merits of both and pick a trek that would the team
To be honest BOTH sides are spectacular and the way I design trek is to AVOID the main trekking highways !!!
