Budawangs off-track

Trip type: 
Bushwalking
Difficulty: 
Medium
Start date: 
Wednesday, 2 December 2020 - 8:00am to Friday, 4 December 2020 - 6:00pm

This is a planned off track walk and navigation exercise in the Budawangs. It will involve around 8km of track walking and around 20km of off-track walking, hopefully the off-track part will be easier due to the fires last summer. The walk will be 3 days 2 nights to allow for potential slow or very slow going off-track. You will need to be reasonably fit and adventurous. Previous off-track/ bush bashing experience is preferable along with some map reading knowledge although not required of all group members.
