SOCIAL CLIMBERS TRIP – Thursday 28 November 2019 

Destination: Mount Arthur Region

For our final walk of the year, we plan a walk ini the Mt Arthur region, see below for the details. The intention is to have two separate groups to accommodate as many members as possible: Mt Arthur Hut G2 and Flora Saddle Hut G1.

The groups will travel together to the Mt Arthur carpark but return separately.

Mt Arthur Hut group:

   - from the carpark it is two+ hours gently upward on an excellent track to the hut. 

   - from the hut you can return the same way or via Flora Saddle hut.

   - 4-5 hours round trip - slowly going. Trail is G1 but steady gentle uphill and duration means walk has been graded a 2. 

Flora Saddle Hut group:

   - this group have a much less demanding walk - Grade 1.

   - it is well within the capabilities of most 'Monday Walkers'.

   - from the carpark - gentle up for less than half an hour then a gentle down to the hut.

   - less than two hours round trip - slowly going.

   - lunch will be on gentle grassy slopes with a pleasant stream at the hut.
