  1. Wondering what the site would be like for camping? Otherwise it’s a very long walk between Stony Creek and Catninga Shed. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

    • Michelle,
      It’s a very exposed site. Could be very windy, though I believe great views east and west. Need to be sure your tent is well tied down.

  2. More recent report suggests water just above tap level. In other words not that much!

  3. Tank installed by FoHT Trail Development team on 10/4/2022. Do not rely on this tank until good rains fall in the area. Through walkers are asked to observe tank level and submit reports to the Friends Office for posting here.
