Event description
A fun, adventure and hike through the Bullen Ranges along the Southern Ridge and up Barnes Hill.

About this Event

Let's keep moving through winter, get and keep hiking fit with our ATICA Winter Warmer Walkies.

We are going to start the hike at the entrance to Bullen Reserve off Tidbinbilla Road, about 1.6km west of the Point Hut Rd intersection.

We will hike up Barnes Hill which will provide us with stunning 360 views.

We will walk along the southern ridge of Bullen Range, through fairly dense forest, grassland, and alongside a pine forest.

Parts of this trail are along management and fire trails that make hiking a little easier.

Although there are some steep and challenging sections, it is a walk suitable for all fitness levels as we will take our time and pace ourselves.

I would much rather you get out and enjoy a day in nature, challenge yourself and achieve new things. You have my support and encouragement the whole way.

It is getting cold. Winter is here. Good socks: merino wool or something similar to keep your tootsies warm, gloves, neck sock, and head bands are all things that can help with keeping comfortable.

Weather:

I will update the weather forecast the day before just to ensure we can all be prepared. It is best to layer dress. It's easier to de-layer and to warm up/cool down and layers are easier to carry in your back pack.

The day will only be cancelled if the weather looks really bad and or dangerous.

I will also be in touch with everyone coming via both the Wilderness Wanderer's FB group and email to confirm any last minute details.
