From the escarpment we follow the track to Bonnum Pic. Wildflowers are prolific and the views are spectacular. HAZARDS: Steep rough track, slippery creek crossing, fallen trees, unfenced cliff edges. All but the lst 500 metres is a grade 4 walk. We will be stopping just short of the Pic which is extremely steep with deep drop-offs and should only be attempted by persons with good climbing skills.
