This Sunday come and join me on a beginners hike up Mt Mitchell in Main Range National Park! All the info you need to know is below 🙂
Where? Mt Mitchell, Main Range National Park
What? 3 hour hike approximately, might be 4 hours depending on frequency of stops for selfies
When? Leave Brisbane at 7am on Sunday 6th August, approximate arrival time 8:30 for a 9am start time
Why? Because hiking is awesome!!
Who? I’ve limited the hike to 25 people, which is quite a lot of people on a small trail
I’ve just joined UQMC a this sem, keen for the Mt Barney hike and have been able to NA work for it, but I was unable to swap shifts to go to the Mt Mitchell hike, was hopeful of doing MT Greville, but can’t get out of work that day too grrr!
I know I need to have hiked at least once with you guys before doing harder trips like Barney, I’ve done the overland track in Tazzie a few years ago and do enough hikes to have my own pack and boots etc. Would you take that into consideration?
Further to our discussion on Facebook, at the end of the day the trip leaders will just get to know you and assess your ability as they spend time with you. Our aim is to make sure everyone has a great time! So we don’t want someone to accidentally over estimate their ability and struggle with sore knees and ankles on a week long hike.
If you ever feel out of your hiking groove I can fill you in on a few good hikes to train on to get you ready for some more arduous adventures!
