Cancelled - ACT Canberra Chapter Meetup Sunday 19Feb

Cancelled due to weather​

Lets try again soon​

G'day y'all. There is a bit of interest in a Brindies trip so, how about this?

4x4 Earth - Canberra Chapter Meetup and Brindabella day trip. Dry weather only. Family friendly.

Meet at Conder Hut, 9am Sunday 19Feb. Conder hut (S35 18.795 E148 52.304 (copy n paste into google maps)) is on Brindabella Rd on the left hand side 5.3km from Uriarra homestead heading to Picadilly Circus. Blue Range Rd is just before Conder hut and on the right. I'll be parked so I will be seen from the road. It's easy to miss Conder Hut and parking is out of sight from the road. Let me know if you're not sure. Air down.

Then travel via Picadilly Circus and Gentle Annie to Flea Creek (morning tea). Then via Webbs Ridge Trail to McIntyres Hut for lunch. Return via Dingi Ridge and Blue Range Rd back to Conder Hut. Air up and go home. Easy/medium. Steep ascents and decents, rocky, hairpins. 60km total (40 km L1). 6 hours.

Just in case, please make sure you have basic recovery gear, UHF radio, good tyres, and a full tank of fuel. Any questions?

Who's in?

Lads, Did Monkey Gum, Some of Yarranmunmun and 12 Mile yesterday... What a hoot. Very keen to get the truck dirty again... Will need help finding Conder Hut though. Is there some decent offroading in there?

I'm looking forward to exploring that area some time (hint).

Define "decent". There are some side tracks that will articulate and tip and most have been blocked with rocks to prevent further adventure.

Mrpatchman,

The main trails are in pretty good shape but there are a few good side trails good for a play....there is a pretty funky powerline trail up a hill I might be keen to try with others around to help if needed:)

12 Mile Track is on the Southern Side of Turpentine Rd... South of Monkey Gum. If you can find Sassasfras on the map, it is just East of it on the SThern side of Turpentine Rd... The track goes way down Sth and can end up on top of Porters Creek Dam.

I reckon we organise a March odd trip and Ill take us through there and down into Nelligen and then through Deua the next day? Or something similar.

G'day Shane. 9am at Conder Hut (see OP for details). I just had a look on my map and it might be a nice drive via Tumut. We could meet you at Gentle Annie turnoff (S35 21.757 E148 46.065) about 10am (save you having to come over the hill).
