Dear bush walkers,

If you have walked with me before, you know most walks I organise are level 4 (out of 5). Note that this walk is 18.2km long, but more importantly it is Protected content climb. It takes over 8h to do this walk, without breaks, and it requires above average fitness level, as well as previous bushwalking experience and proper shoes. So please think twice before you sign up for this event.

NOTE: depending in weather conditions, event date might change. Please check for updates regularly.
Note that I am not taking responsibility for your safety during the walk. As I am not a professional guide, this is just an invitation if you want to join me for a walk.
Please read all the details of this walk before you sign in for this event!!

This circuit starts in Blackheath and heads down into the Grand Canyon and Rodriguez Pass. The track goes through a wide variety of ecosystems and changing views along the way. An interesting part of this walk is the change in mood of the cliffs that surround the Grose Valley as the light conditions change throughout the day.

Please wear enclosed sturdy walking shoes (preferably hiking boots), bring weather protection according to weather forecast, insect repellent, sun protection, hat, sun screen, plenty drinking water Protected content snacks and lunch.
(first aid, hiking poles, medication, camera)

Lunch stop will be at about half way. Note that lunch break will be 30min only. Please bring your own food.
