Would you like to get Fit through Hiking?
As a qualified Fitness Trainer and with my Wilderness First Aid Certificate I take people out each week Hiking through Sydney's National Parks to get fit, happy and healthy.
This is about getting FIT in Nature, we walk fast on the flat and at your own pace up hills. Our regular HIKEFit sessions are two + hour exercise program,
Another benefit of exercising in nature, is you are hiking with other like-minded individuals, what a great way to meet you people and learn new things, all while getting fit, there are wonderful mental health benefits as well as the Physical.
Saturday 14th December
6.30am - 10am
Meeting point: 26 Morgan St · Thornleigh
Car Pooling required
Saturday 14th Dec, we are completing the Thornleigh to Hornbsy section of the GNW. Although this walk is fairly easy at the beginning, its the 2nd half that you come for . The scenery is lovely, the hike is challenging and the ending is what is it is all about.
Its a one way track, only 10km .. so some car pooling is needed on this Hike. We will start at the Thornleigh end and walk to Hornsby. If you are on a train line, we could organise to pickup and drop off at the train station.
If you have the time and you want a 20Km hike, bring some extra food and we will head back to the car rather than carpool. BUT PLEASE warn me inadvance
Killarney Steps, Davidson
Sunday 15th December
3pm - 5:15pm
Meeting point: 14 Ryrie Avenue , Forestville
Car Pooling required
Sunday 15th December, HIKEFit will meet at 14 Ryrie Street 10mins before start time, and carpool into Davidson Park. There is an $8 parking fee, unless you have a national park pass...
You're going to have some fun today, as we walk under the Roseville bridge to the lefthand side of the park to find the hidden steps that lead to a bush track, this track then leads us to another "forbidden" track , where we make a small detour and head up some steep and narrow steps. Watch you balance as you come down . We will then continue onto the intersection of a third track, where we head down some steps and if the tide is out stop at the water edge for our break and turnaround point. Just next to the waters edge is this magnificent Rock formation which when its wet makes a spectacular waterfall.
Approx 6KM, Level 4. As this is short hike, use it as a great opportunity to get your speed up. Allow around 2.5hours for carpooling, hike an stretching.
Berowra Steps + Coffee
Saturday 21st December
7am-10am + Coffee
Meeting point: car park at Berowra Waters Ferry
Saturday 20th December will be our last hike for 2019. So we are going out with one of our favourites. Berowra Steps.
This will be the only hike this weekend, so everyone is welcome from standard hikers to moderate hikers to advanced hikers. We are going to meet at the Berowra ferry (park close to Kirkpatrick Way)so we can end there and enjoy coffee, croissant or breakfast together. Please allow extra time for the 30+min drive each way and the coffee at the Ferryhouse!
I recommend car pooling; I can help with coordinating that. We will start at 7am allowing you for a 2 hours hike and then breakfast :)
What should you expect.. the beginning of the hike is a steep ascent with magnificent views over Berowra Waters. After reaching the top we then need to head down some steep steps to we reach a management trail in Berowra. We might head around the corner to Nula Lookout before returning to cafe. Its only 3.5km each way , so although there are two big hills , it is manageable by everyone
The highlights of this hike is the picturesque caves and the stunning views.
