Narbethong Hills and Slippery Places - Stuart Gibson Trip Leader
Narbethong - Stuart Gibson Trip Leader
Hills and Slippery Places
This trip into the Narbethong Forest will include some technical tracks at the more challenging end of the Medium rating.
Expect a little bit of bush touring between some testing obstacles including some mud (but not too deep), some slippy hills, a water crossing and some fairly steep hills.
There are only a couple of areas of itchy and scratchy and if you go slowly through them you can emerge without any new pinstripes.
This trip is ideally suited to those who want to stretch their skills without going over the top difficult.
Trip leader special/additional requirements
Mud Terrain tyres or aggressive All Terrain tyres
Water Bra or Wading Sheet
