Perimeter trail, Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Saturday 21st October, 2017

The Cartophiles’ October day walk is the Perimeter Trail, an easy-to-moderate rated walk that contours gently around the northern side of Terrey Hills on a wide mostly level trail.  This popular horse riding, mountain bike and walking trail takes us past several beautiful lookouts and picnic spots, with occasional views across Ku-Ring-Gai National Park.

The Perimeter Trail is a 7.2km one-way walk.  The majority of the walk is flat or gentle hills with occasional steps, but about 2½km has short steep hills. It should take us 2½-3 hours.

We’ll meet at the end of the walk, outside 24 Nerang Avenue, Terrey Hills, at 9.30 am on Saturday 21st September.  We’ll leave some cars there and pool in the remaining vehicles for the 10 minute drive to the start of the walk at the intersection of Cullamine Rd & Bulara St.  There’s no public transport to either end of the walk.

After the walk we’ll go for lunch and a debrief to the Terrey Hills Tavern, 2 Aumuna Rd, Terrey Hills.

Wear a hat and carry at least a litre of drinking water. The forecast is for rain during the week clearing by that weekend, with partial cloud cover and a temperature in the high 20s.  Therefore, bring sun block but seriously consider carrying a rain coat.

It’s likely to be muddy underfoot, so wear boots, walking shoes, cross trainers or similar – thongs or crocs aren’t suitable.
