Event description

Description

Pigeon House Mountain Didthul in Morton National Park is a day hike that has it all. The reward far outweighs the short distance (5km return hike) – epic views of the ocean, gorges and wilderness. Right near the town of Milton, it’s a wonderfully different way to explore this beautiful part of the NSW South Coast.

On our hike, we begin by meeting in the small town Milton, car pool to the start of Pigeon House and return back to Milton between 2-3pm.

The hike is steep in parts and has ladders to reach the summit. It’s a perfect hike to take it slow and embrace a sense of adventure. Together we will take 4 hours return (stopping for a morning tea/brunch) at the top.

FAQS

Will I be fit enough? I’m worried I’ll hold the group back. This hike is not far, but has a steep incline. We take is very slow and support each other. It’s best if you have a basic level of walking fitness and comfortable to walk up steep hills and steps. There are ladders to climb up the top of the mountain which are secured.

What are the ages of ladies in the community? Women range between 28-65 years of age.

How far is Milton from Sydney? Please allow up to 3.5 hours to get from Sydney to Milton. It would be best to arrive the day/night before and make a weekend out of it!

Is there car pooling from Sydney? We don’t organise car pooling from Sydney. Once we have all bookings, we can send around a group email to see if anyone is coming from the same area. We cannot guarantee lifts for you.
