The threat of rain on the radar did not deter 5 hardy walkers to join leaders Claude & Margaret to enjoy a lovely one-way hike from the revised starting place of Joalah Crescent, Berowra Heights to Crosslands Reserve at Hornsby Heights.   In fact the rain stayed away for the majority of the morning with only a little drizzle towards the end as the tree canopy served to keep everyone dry . 

We met at Crosslands Reserve where an easy car shuffle was arranged to take everyone to the start of the walk.   We began with a short fire trail walk to the Naa Badu Lookout, one of the best view points in NSW and from there we re-traced our steps to the start of the Great North Walk

We descended down the steep metal staircase over rock platforms to the trail below which follows the valley and zig zags to Sams Creek.   The crossing of the river is as always pre-carious but well marked with arrows and there were no incidents.   We followed the track via the salt marsh and board walk to the footbridge over Calna Creek to return to Crosslands Reserve. 

Coffee & much laughter was enjoyed at the home of the leaders Margaret & Claude at their home in Hornsby Heights.
