Social Walk as per the Social Distancing Rules at Mt Cootha EVERY SATURDAY!

The walk from JC Slaughter Falls to the Mt Coot-Tha summit is 2600m uphill (+5 km return.) It is called the Mahogany Trail, number 66 on the MtCoot-tha Forest Track Map. This is a social walk and so we will be going at a pace where we can still talk, we will be sharing the track with cyclists and horses are also allowed so keep to the left. If you are fit and want to walk fast, we will meet you at the top.

At the Summit we will have breakfast or coffee together at the Kuta Cafe. The cafe does not take bookings so we will take our chances! The walk is dog friendly but the Cafe is not so if you don't want to leave your dog tied up then you won't be able to go in the Cafe. We can get you something from the Cafe if you wanted.
.

MEETING POINT (ALERT THIS IS A NEW MEETUP POINT DUE TO CLOSURE OF THE PREVIOUS TRACK)

Turn off Sir Samuel Griffith Drive at the JC Slaughter Falls Picnic Area. We meet at the first block of toilets on the right. We leave very prompt at 7 am, if you are late and we have left, you can walk up and meet us at the Summit or you can try and catch up while walking up. There is still plenty of social time for chatting once we get up there and there will be the walk down.

Please note that sometimes it is difficult to find a park so allow yourself time and you might have to walk a bit to the starting point.

*THE WALK is a new walk because the previous track ( Summit track) has been closed for upgrading until mid 2019. It is a bit longer then the previous track so allow for 40 minutes walking up. See you there!
Annemarie

Please note that in summer it can be difficult to find a park so allow yourself time because we do leave at 7 a.m. exactly.

*****COULD YOU PLEASE R.S.V.P. on the 'Brisbane Social Singles' site too. Not everyone who is attending is single as this is event is also on the 'Out and About Brisbane' site too. We just want to make it easy as possible for the hosts so that they only have to check one site not three.....thank you for understanding.

SOCIAL WALKS - EVERY SATURDAY AT TOOHEY FOREST.

Needs a location

JOIN US FOR A SOCIAL WALK EVERY SATURDAY AT TOOHEY FOREST.

WHERE - We meet at the car park at the Salisbury Hotel at 9.45 am to leave at 10am.

THE WALKS- You can decide during the walk which walk you would like to to on. We don't do every walk every time as it is up to the people in the group what walks that they want to do. We all walk up a hill to get to where the toilets are then walk a bit further, then stop and decide which tracks we are taking. Please remember that you must stay with the group that you are walking with and no one should be ever walking alone.

. There are 3 tracks-

Walk no. 1 - this a 5 km walk- this track is totally flat.

Walk no. 2 - this is 7 km walk - this walk is an extension of the 5 km track and you have to go up a hill.

Walk no. 3- this track is 12 kms. up to the lookout and has some challenging hills.

If you feel like it, after the walk, come in to the hotel where we parked the cars for a drink and or dinner with the group. The walk is a great way to end the weekend and meet some new people. We hope to see you there! your hosts- Julie, Steve and Trudi.

Sun walk and dinner starting at 3!...every Sunday.

Needs a location

Come for a relaxing walk through the forest. This walk is suited for people with medium level fitness so not really good for total beginners. We meet at the car park at the Salisbury Hotel at 2.45. There are two paths to choose from. The path is about 7 kms. and it has two hills. 2. The path is totally flat and about 5 kms.. We will have dinner or coffee at the hotel right near where we park afterwards...we hope to see you there!
p.s. this is a joint meetup with another meetup group - so there should be about 10 or more attending. This is an adult only walk and dogs can come but have to be on a lead of course! IT IS A GREAT WAY TO END THE WEEKEND. EVERYONE IS VERY FRIENDLY!
