CENTRAL COAST - BRIBANE WATER NP - MT WONDABYNE - MTB/HIKE - 28 november 2013
Jacinta has a new bike. Time for a road test.
We cycled to the base of Mount Wondabyne and then hike the track to the top.
It was hard going as the trail was step for 2 kilometres and the weather was hot. We had a number of rest spots. The hike to the top was relatively short but easy.
The summit has amazing view over the central coast. Looking to the east, there are pockets of settlement amongst a sea of green islands. The breeze was cool on this side which was a relief. The western side was green as far as the eye could see in a range of 180 degrees. Amazing!
The ride back was downhill and quicker and so more fun!
