LifeWay Bushwalkers - JULY

LifeWay Bushwalkers - JULY

19 July, 2020 @ 12:30 PM

Hi Bushwalkers.

Following on from the highly successful June walk, we’ve decided on something of similar intensity for the July walk. We have a few more logistical issues to sort out however, as it’s a one-way walk this time.

Date: Sunday 19 July

Time: meet at Thornleigh Oval at 12:30pm (15mins walk from Thornleigh train station)

Location: Thornleigh Oval, Handley Ave Thornleigh to LifeWay carpark, Epping

Distance: 7.5km (mostly downhill)

Duration: 2hrs (plus rest/break time)

Terrain: rocky (wear sturdy shoes), possibly muddy, several water crossings

Bronwyn and I did it yesterday in 2hrs, with a short break. There are five creek crossings on stepping stones, plus 2 concrete causeways – we traversed all of them with dry boots! It’s a fairly easy walk starting from Thornleigh (not like last year going the other way!), and the hardest part is probably at the end once we’ve come out of the tunnel under the M2! The first block heading up Somerset St towards Norfolk Road is a bit steep.

Getting there and back

There are several options for you to choose from:

- Both start and end locations are close to train stations and the trains are running that weekend, so using trains is one option - either before or after or both.

- If you have 2 cars, you could drop one car at LifeWay Epping, then drive to Thornleigh – there’s parking at the Oval.

- We can meet at LifeWay Epping at 11:45am and organise car pools, with half the cars staying at Epping, the other half driving to Thornleigh.

Let me know if you’re interested in the car pool idea so we can figure out the numbers.

Hope to see you all on the 19th!
