Forest jaunt above the Sports Complex

We had a larger turnout for this hike than we’ve had in many months, 23, as some who have been away are now back, plus one newcomer to our group, a Thai lady. I can recall 8 nationalities. Our youngest hiker was 7 years old, and I won’t tell you about the age of the oldest.

We took about 5 hours to complete the hike, more than estimated, as we paused often to regroup and also stopped to eat along the trail before returning to the waterfall as some needed the energy to keep going.

Many parts of the trail have high grass, the sort of thing to be expected during rainy season. And, yes, we did have a bit of light rain, but it felt good since the weather was quite warm and muggy at these low elevations. We were able to follow the trail, which we had marked in places with bits of a white plastic bag.

By the time we reached the waterfall on the return, most had finished their pack lunches, but we spent a while there just resting and visiting. This was a lovely group to hike with, all helping and watching out for the others. We had one at the back to tell us when we needed to stop, and next time he should be given a whistle. Janet
