Dingle Block, Stanley State Forest : June 12

There were thirteen of us on this misty June day, for a 12km walk in the Stanley Forest.

This was to be a medium loop walk in the Dingle Block of the Forest, starting and finishing at Old Stanley Road, walking on fire trails which lead up to, and around the back of Stanley township, a hilly walk, with quite a lot of up and down.

After two weeks of rain the bush looked fresh and healthy, and luckily not too slimy underfoot as we laboured up the hilly terrain.

Expectedly, many and varied fungi were seen along the tracks, and the Peter Finedon Path saved us all from a steep and dangerous descent at the end of Ritchies Track, and was much commended by all!

A young, and inexperienced, 4WD enthusiast was stuck half way up this almost vertical fire trail after attempting the ascent.

A most enjoyable day with friends, and we also welcomed a new member, David from Cheshunt.
