We started at Measday's Lookout. This was a nice section of wide track covered in gravel. We chose to walk in the grass next to the path as the gravel can be slippery and harsh on leather soled shoes.
Nic had prepared a fabulous repast of pork pie, scotch egg, cheese and dried beef. He had also prepared aerated water in a torpedo bottle.
We managed to descend the 7kms in 2 hours including our picnic.
This was our favorite stage and we will definately walk it again. Next time we may walk it in reverse as a return hike of 14kms. The lack of cars, bicycles and other modern inventions also increased our enjoyment. We even ended the day with a celebratory drink at the Edinburgh Hotel in Mitcham.
