My 4 km (return) hike was on Monday afternoon September 13, 2010, starting at the gate at Olinda Creek Rd, opposite Management Road 13.
I followed the Track all the way to Hermon's Track, where it crossed the Lyrebird Creek.
The route passed through some of the best fern gullies in the Forest, a former logging area.
There was an elevation change from 260 m to 301 m. Commotions were coming from the forest canopy, due to Kookaburras and Cockatoos, indignant at my intrusion on to their land!
Leeches are annoying, some were about 4 cm long and have to be removed.
Some colorful red and white Fungi were discovered.
See all of the Photos, including a nice leech!
