Narbethong Recce - Stuart Gibson Trip Leader

Narbethong Recce - Stuart Gibson Trip Leader


A recce of the usual tracks
This trip into the Narbethong Forest will seek out some technically challenging tracks for a Medium rated trip to be listed in October. This trip will aim at the more challenging end of the Medium rating.

In line with policy I have rated this Recce one level higher at "Difficult".

We will travel at a reasonable rate in order to cover as much ground as possible. Expect some slippery hills and a couple of mud puddles and a water crossing.
