18/08/05 Report Huay Tung Tao ridge loop


A merry band of 16 hikers and 3 K9s assembled at the start point on a cloudy and humid morning.  With the pre-hike rituals completed the group set off into the forest along a nice flat trail allowing everyone to loosen up before the hill climb commenced.  A respectable pace was made and we were soon on the dirt road and the main uphill trek.  This was also being used for a 36hr endurance race so we had a lot of company on this section of the hike.  We took a short break for water and to regroup at the top of our ascent and then continued along a quiet dirt road which contoured around the hillside and eventually took us out of the forest into farmland.  Making good progress a leisurely snack break was taken after about 2 hours hiking, unfortunately we were in the clouds so there was not really much scenery to be had but there was the occasional break which offered some views of Chiang Mai and the surrounding area.  After the break we continued along the dirt road for a few hundred metres then took a trail back into the forest and the start of the descent.  The conditions underfoot were not to slippery considering the recent rainfall but, the group did get separated somewhat and the last few hundred metres of the hike were done in many different ways due to the newly constructed road but everyone made it back and there was a full house at the restaurant.

A pretty fast time of 3hrs 40mins, distance 11kms and total ascent of 510mtrs for those interested in stats.

Thanks to all for the company and making it a fun morning, lunch was good too.  Thanks to Matt for the photo.
