Jul-Dec 2019

We assembled early on a forecasted hot and windy day and decided to reverse the published direction of the walk on Clive's advice regarding the underfoot conditions on the Marramarra Ridge side and the tidal nature of a creek crossing following recent rain. The Smugglers' Ridge descent was without incident through attractive fire and bush trails down to Marramarra Creek.

The group opted for an additional 2K there and back to a NP camp site to take advantage of picnic table facilities, only to find campers in possession - logs had to substitute. The steep climb back to the cars via Marramarra Ridge was arduous and hot and prompted much debate as to the accuracy of the'250 metres' ascent and descent information on the program. Double that at least was the assessment... However, it was well worth it and all agreed the day had been excellent.
