Griffin’s firebreak-Kaitawa Rd Track, York Bay EM

Sunday 2 September

This trip was scheduled as "Griffin’s (Mawson) firebreak-Kaitawa Rd Tk, York Bay". However the wet conditions caused us to take the alternative route of Leighton's Gully to reach to ECNZ road.

We found the main ridge track extremely muddy after much use by mtn bikers. Kaitawa Tk looked really lovely in the damp conditions with the Hard Beech trees in flower and lush bush. The day was calm with a little rain.

A nicely timed exit had us on a bus quickly to end this short but worthwhile trip. 4 members participated.

4 Party members
