I just entered a new trip to the walks programme.

*Echo Point-Giant Stairway-Ruined Castle-Golden Stairs.*

Leader:Bruce Stafford

Walk: Starting from Echo Point, Katoomba, going down the Giant Stairway,
then along Federal Pass to Ruined Castle, then return to Katoomba via
Golden Stairs.

Rating: medium - Giant Stairway has 900 steps down, and Golden Stairs are
not as steep but still a lot of steps back up. Federal Pass is rough at the
Landslide but otherwise fairly level. Walk length is about 10km. You need
to be sure you can manage the length and the rather steep climbs down and
back up.

What to bring: Lunch, 1.5 Litres water, good shoes (Volleys or runners are
OK), weather is looking just partly cloudy but bring a rain cover just in
case. It will be a cool day so a jumper is also recommended.

Opportunity for an after-walk stop at local cafes for coffee or whatever.

Propbably would be back in Sydney by 6.30pm. Travelling by train (unless
you opt to drive or meet up in Katoomba)

Details of meeting place will be provided once you sign up. It will be at a
civilsed time in the morning!

SUBW/Subwoir members only of course.
