6-7 Feb (Sat - Sun) 2021: BOX CREEK FALLS (E-M-VH, off track) This walk will happen one day, but dates are dependent on this area opening to hikers again and covid-crisis lockdowns being lifted. From the Kowmung River Fire Trail, walk to Box Creek Falls, then camp below the falls somewhere. Follow the Box Creek down to the Kowmung River, and climb back up - probably via Boss Peak. There is a walks report of this being done some time ago, with difficulty finding a campsite, so numbers restricted to 6. Return to cars via the fire trail. If you were previously booked, please sign up again. Limit: 6. Map: Wollangambe.
