The trek took the bushwalkers between Gulph Creek and Nerrigundah Ridge Road.

The area has many old gold mines, most with very deep holes, and the level areas display more signs of gold mining with big stone stoves and left over rocky frameworks.

The 4km section beside Gulph Creek is an enjoyable hike with twelve stream crossings between the ridges. 

Gulph Creek drops slowly between the larger ponds providing a steady rumble, and every so often has a small waterfall of a couple of metres providing a louder background rumble almost drowning out the noise of the birds practicing for spring.

Margaret Moran and Jan Thomas led them on the bushwalk through this now unused area of Nerrigundah.

On Saturday, August 26, the group had their general meeting and distributed their spring and summer bushwalking programme.

This programme has some new bushwalks as well as some of the spring and summer favourites.
