Arriving at Kilcooney car park at approximately 10am and on the Trail by 10.15am. Distance: Approximately 24km Ascent: Approximately 1600m Time: Approximately 7h 30min There is a lot of ascent/climbing in this hike... **Strong fit hikers only please...if you have not hiked with me in the past, you need to prove your strength and fitness to me** **If you have not done any hiking with The Trail Blazers prior to this hike, it is unlikely that you will get acceptance onto this trip** The responsibility is on you personally to keep up with the pace of this fast group...if you fall behind you will have to make your own way back to the cars...possibly in poor weather/visibility. If you RSVP for this hike you automatically accept full responsibility for your own health and safety while on this hike.
We will meet at Roundwood and car pool to a location closer to the camping spot. The walk to the camp spot should only be 3 or 4km. We will pitch the tents and go for a hike around luggala. Lots of hike options here. We may do a shortish approx 15km and a longer approx 23km hike. We will then retreat to the camp site to drink beer and tell ghost stories. Everyone needs to ensure they have appropriate gear and food for an overnight wild camp. If anyone wants to come and doesn't have a tent, post a comment and someone may have a spare one. If anyone wants to just come along for the hike only thats fine too, just make sure you have transport back.
