Cudlee Creek to Nugget Road

Sun 5 Nov 2017

Walk name/location
Cudlee Creek to Nugget Road
Walk grade
End-to-End 11
Description

A pretty walk through the rolling hills of the South Mt Lofty Ranges including several blocks of the Mt Crawford Forest Reserve and picturesque farmlands. The trail includes a climb up & the descent of Mt. Gould followed by a few minor ups & downs prior to the finish of the walk. There is short walk to the cars after leaving the track upon meeting Nugget Road (this may vary depending upon how far the bus is able to drive along Nugget Road).

Please note this is our last walk for the season. Being our end of year celebration, it will again be themed as Christmas.

We would love every one to don their tinsel and Christmas attire and bring a (small) Christmas theme plate of food to share.

The support car will have a fridge, so you can bring food that needs refrigeration.

Ho Ho Ho!
