Simpsons Gap ridge view:
An early start and early finish, climbing the ridge line south-west of the Woodland Trail for great views of Simpsons Gap and the Alice region. There is no track to follow and the climb to the ridge top is steep, but overall the walk is of a medium standard (about 6km, 2.5 hours).
What to bring:
Sturdy, comfortable shoes; gaiters (to protect your legs from spinifex, burrs and seeds; sunscreen, hat, long-sleeved shirt; small pack with water (3 litres), snacks, camera, personal first aid and medications.
Where to meet:
6:15am at Stuart Park carpark (opposite the Memo Club on Gap Rd).
We car pool and share petrol costs. For this walk it will be about $3 per person (excluding drivers). Please bring correct change.
We aim to be back in Alice Springs by mid-late morning, in time for a cooling swim before brunch.
