We’ll start walking from Mackey’s lookout. It will save the bulk of the ‘big walk’ up the mountain while allowing us to walk up into that wonderful view across the gorge to the chalet. There is still a climb up to the chalet though, and the section of the walk past the chalet still has some climb in sections.
We’ll then make our way past the underground river and take a side-trip up to ‘View point’, past Lake Catani, and then explore the Chalwell galleries circuit (note; the galleries circuit involves a little ladder-work and contortioning – you can wait this section out at Lake Catani if you’d prefer). We’ll then return to the chalet and back down the way we came.
We’ll start early, but you must bring a torch (and don’t make dinner plans) – we could be pushing the dusk on the return down to the cars if we lose time at some stage.
