Walk for Sunday, May 27th, 2018
Ken Bradstock is leading a loop walk taking in the colourful Ochre pits, the rugged Pioneer Gorge, then the Larapinta Trail section 9 and the beautiful Inarlanga Pass and return to the Ochre Pits via the Arrernte walk
Grade: Moderate-hard. Approximately 13 Km total walking – about 5 hours, including breaks. The drive there and back is about 2.5 hours.
The terrain is relatively flat.
There is spinnifex. If you’re going to wear shorts, expect prickles. There is some rocky creek bed walking. If there is water in Pioneer Gorge (unlikely at this time), you may need to scramble up a steep side.
If you’re interested, please call Ken, on 0430526925
Unless otherwise advised (see above), the meeting place for the pre-departure briefing is the car park on the corner of Todd street (Gap road) and Stuart terrace (see map below):
