Decent trail up a beautiful valley through all seasons of the year!

Ed R

Overview

Someone has attempted to close off the valley head by building there, but this is a public valley - used extensively by shepherds and frequented by hikers. For now the bridge remains unlocked - hopefully it'll stay that way.

[On one occasion we've now discovered the gate to be locked (we think by staff from the Alpinism camp concerned about safety in the snow), but there is a publicly accessible (they showed us) key on a string, behind a loose rock in the wall to the left of the gate.]

Runner Notes

This would be runable - on the whole - but there are some narrower sections that would be more consequential if care isn't taken.

Description

Park shortly after the 54km marker*. Cross the bridge - the gate is always unlocked. Cross the footbridge and then head west - along the valley floor on the north side of the river. The path is decent - there are a couple of narrower sections with short straight-forward scrambles. Of greater concern are the areas where the path is narrow and shale with a steep drop away down to the river.

This valley is great in the heat of the summer and in the snows of winter. It's also long - over 20km - the track above is just the first 3km.

There are some bolted walls up the valley for climbing too.

*The best place to park (when there's no snow) is over the bridge - simply open the gate and there's several parking spots over the river from the road. You can park just on the road - it's wide enough at that point, or you can park about 500m back at the lay-by next to the entrance to the National Alpinism Camp
