Hi,

There will be a day walk of roughly 12km at Devils Hole on Sunday. We
will begin at the Explorers Tree and walk clockwise via Devils Hole and
the top bit of the Six Foot Track. The descent (and hence the
ascent) into the Megalong Valley is about 450m (this is from memory).
Unfortunately, to close the loop means about 1km of "suburban" Katoomba
tar road but the  rest is very nice and hence worth it.

If you intend to go and are driving, meet at the Explorers Tree at about
9:45. If you wish to get the train, catch the following train *and* let
me know that you need to be collected at Katoomba station (south side):

   Central      7:32
   Strathfield  7:43
   Parramatta 7:44
   Blacktown   8:06
   Penrith       8:19
   Katoomba   9:28

Additionally, I am considering camping Saturday night at Old Ford
Reserve on the Six Foot Track, and maybe even doing a day walk to the
Suspension Bridge and back. This depends on weather (rain, fire bans,
etc) and whether there is any interest.
