This post corrects an earlier one which had the wrong date and post-hike details. Contrary to the earlier post, the hike will take place on the Sunday, as usual. The hike is about 5 hours and after the hike we will be going to a nice restaurant not far from the starting point.
We will be hiking mainly along farmers trails through agricultural land with some lovely views, seasonal conditions permitting. The hike is at a relatively high altitude, starting at 1000m rising to about 1500m (a total altitude gain of around 700m) and a total distance of about 13km. Although there is a fair amount of shade hats and sunblock are a must and do consider additional fluids too.
Hike leader: Tom
We will meet at 07.30 am for an 07.40 start, in front of the 700-year stadium (see map), just beside the 121 irrigation canal road (not inside the stadium), then carpool to the hike start point.
