1 review for Kalamunda Hikers (term 4) – Semester 2

    The Kalamunda Community Learning Centre Bush Walking Class has functioned during the second half of the first semester of 2022. Hikes, lasting up to 2 hours, have taken place through native bushland in or close to the City of Kalamunda and have been selected from a list published by the City Council.

    A “merry band” of between 8 and 12 walkers have walked routes rated between 1, requiring only modest stamina and expertise, to 4, requiring moderate stamina and bush walking expertise. Elie, our leader, keeps us on the right path at every turn, despite those leading the pack at the time often choosing the wrong way to go.

    We have walked in sunshine, under cloudy skies and in rain, sometimes quite heavy. We have walked on the coffee rock-capped plateau which forms the top of the Darling Ranges, in the valleys which cut into the plateau, and on the Darling Scarp itself, where granite and basalt are sometimes exposed. Our routes have varied from easy-going flat walks to routes up and down the Darling Scarp with short sections of steep paths with slippery downhill sections, and lung-testing uphill “trudges”.

    All this is done at a steady but not excessive pace allowing pleasant conversation all the way. A highlight of each walk has been the provision of a tasty morning tea, usually taken at a spot in the landscape where a good view can be had, rain clouds permitting!
