Mt Robertson Ridge Rambler

Sun 28 Feb, 2016

Trip Rating - Medium (Difficult if wet)

We are revisiting one of our older and more popular day trips.
We have only returned to this area a few times since the 2009 fires.

The regrowth has been great, but there is still evidence of the fire damage.

Views from the ridges and spurs into the valleys on either side are excellent.

With a bit of ever present dampness from the forest the tracks are fun,
add some rain and it's sure to make a few sections more challenging.
