27 Jul, Sat 7:30AM Clifflines to the east of the Bicentennial Trail
Grade:5/6 Length 7km  300m Sydney Branch
Mark G.
Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longThere is an impressive ridge line that parallels the Bicentennial Trail between the Cape Horn ft and the Moffitts ft which I've admired on many occasions whilst walking along the BT. I've always thought about exploring this incredible looking ridge, and now's the time! This is an exploratory walk but you can expect to encounter the usual suspects, such as many pagodas, numerous slots, overhangs and caves and any of the other geological formations you would see within the Gardens of Stone National Park. If you are the adventurous type then this walk should appeal to you. Rock scrambling and off-track.
