Description

Hayley’s Hiking – Sturt Gorge Recreation Park (Intermediate level)

*FREE EVENT*

*DOG FRIENDLY HIKE*

Hi all,

December’s hike will be at the amazing Sturt Gorge exploring the river trail at Sturt Gorge.

*Start time is 8:15am

**HOT WEATHER POLICY: If temp exceeds 30°c then hike will be postponed**

Join me in exploring the trails around Sturt Gorge. We will be exploring the Magpie Creek Trail, river Trail and Spring Creek Trail. There are some amazing views and wildlife (including koalas!) We will be looking at around 3.5 hours and around 12kms. The paths are not flat and there are some creek crossing and slightly challenging paths. While hiking experience is recommended it is not essential and I have taken a first time hiker on this trail before. An average level of fitness is required as this is an intermediate level that I would rate around 7/10 on the “Hayley’s Hiking” rating scale.

Challenge yourself, this is a great way to step up a level in your hiking ability!

Whilst this is a dog friendly hike please take into consideration the paths are not flat and there is some minor rock scrambling. (My 9yo arthritic kelpie will be staying home for this one)

What I supply:

*First aid supplies (and as of 5th November 2017, senior first aid qualifications))

*Trail maps and information

*Fully guided hike

*Sunscreen/inset spray (if required)

*Trail mix for sustenance

*Photos (optional!!)

*Motivation!!! (I have plenty to share and a passion for hiking and healthy living)

What you bring (required):

*Comfortable walking clothes (it's not a fashion event - be comfortable!)

*Sturdy walking shoes

*2+ litres of water

*Sunscreen, hat, etc.

What you bring (optional):

*Backpack

*Camera

*Phone ("Map My Walk" is a great app to use on hikes and I will be using mine to map how far and where we hike)

*Healthy snack
