We must be crazy! Decided to 'run' this circuit as a training exercise, rather than the Rocky Creek circuit used by Parkrun. There are some steep sections that we had to revert to walking, but the down hills were great fun. Think I lost a kg in weight.

Parts of this walk are really steep with loose stones so take care. About half way round coming across a sign warning that they are currently trapping and shooting wild dogs in the area was a bit concerning, but never the less we had no problems. We probably wouldn't take this walk again though.
