121024_Galaire Restaurant Loop

This Wednesday hike is for the fitter hikers, meeting at 8am in the restaurant car park, we aim to be back by 11am or earlier.
This is a moderately difficult hike of 5.76 km, lasting about 2 – 3 hours. Some parts of the trail are steep and may be slippery as they can be wet at this time of year.

If it rains

If it is raining heavily we will probably cancel the hike. But in the case of lighter rain if it looks like the weather might clear up we will probably go ahead with the hike and brave the rain which will at least cool us down.
