End 2 End Minus 2 Week 6

Sat 17 to Sun 25 Sep 2022

Walk name/location
End 2 End Minus 2 Week 6
Walk grade
End-to-End Minus 2
Description

The final week for 2022 where we are based out of Burra for the whole week, in Ngadjuri country.
It is not one for the unfit or the faint hearted.
You will need an above normal level of fitness.
Preferably, you will have walked with Minus 2 for Week 5.
If you did not walk Week5 with Minus 2 please contact the walk leaders before registering.

Day 1 Dares Hill Summit Road though the very picturesque Tourilie Gorge and out in to the mallee, finishing at Newikie Creek. Spinifex country, gaiter a good idea.
Day 2 Newikie Creek to Wandallah, heading out of the mallee, past our newest hut at Blackjack.
Day 3 Wandallah to Burra a truly up and down ride. Brings out the true meaning of “useless hills”.
Day 4 Rest day explore Burra, do some twitching at Red Banks CP or just chill out.
Day 5 Burra to Worlds End, through Dutton’s Trough and not one of the Trails gems, I must say. New wind and solar farms may afford the opportunity for a better Trail experience, however I doubt we will be able to enjoy it, but noy yet.
Day 6 World’s End to Burra Road, across the Hallelujah Hills and over the Whyalla Pipeline.
Day 7 Burra Road to Webb Gap and our traverse of the Tothill Ranges which we will complete in year three
