2nd February 2020

3 trampers looking for a walk turned up at 8-30 am and headed out through Five Forks to Turnbulls Road, stopping at the cattle yards part way along it.

We started off heading SE towards a forestry block, following along the boundry and crossing a few steep gullies. There were good views here out over the North Otago downlands,

It was then a steady climb, heading south west towards Scout Hill. A light northerly rain started about the time we had a view of the Kakanui’s so we decided to stop for an early lunch and put our parkas on. 

With all the ups and downs behind us, it was just a matter of circling round to the farm track which led to the start of Turnbulls Road and a stroll back to the car by 1-30 pm for a 11.5k enjoyable walk. Thanks to Maurice ans Phyllis for coming. Ross M.
