Via Betts Hill Track
Wednesday 17 May 2023
This walk was from Andersons Road near Lower Longley using the Betts Hill Track . After crossing the farmland it headed up at a mostly gentle gradient to reach the junction of the track to Cathedral Rock. The track was clear and in good order and, up until the steep ascent of Cathedral Rock, is very pleasant walking. It goes from tall forest then on to the top of a dry ridge with some open areas which were delightful in the warm calm conditions, and with good views.
Lunch was on Cathedral Rock in such pleasant weather that there wasn’t even a need to put a top over our shirts.
All up the walk was about 5km each way took 5½ hours.
