The Great Escarpment Trail feedback

Postby BushwalkingNSWAdmin » Sat 12 Mar, 2022 2:54 pm

Bushwalking Queensland Inc. and Bushwalking NSW Inc. are working to create a trail that links all the Gondwanan World Heritage rainforests from Barrington Tops in NSW (near Newcastle) to Boonah in south-east Queensland. We're calling it The Great Escarpment Trail. See more here: https://www.bushwalkingnsw.org.au/bushwalking/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/The-Great-Escarpment-Trail.pdf

What do you think of the Great Escarpment Trail?

Please complete this very quick survey to let us know what you think: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScf3ojHCq9hoHC-2SCXwgOoU52thaHsSdT-I-TAQBC9TvdJ1g/viewform

Many thanks for your contribution!

Filled out the survey, looks like you're all doing great work and I'm keen to see how it develops.

A few other things that might be worth adding into your 'Quick Statistics' that would very much be of interest to me;
Min/Max/Average Distance between resupply locations.
% of trail currently on the 'Country Roads' you mention. If it's 40% country roads, or rail trail, it would change me from "Very Interested in hiking the whole trail" to "probably won't think of hiking, might hike the non-road bits"

Contact Gavin in the 'how to enter section'.

https://www.bushwalkingnsw.org.au/get-g ... mpetition/

He'll send you a link where you'll be able to download the sections that interest you...or download the whole thing.

There's a PDF for each section too, campsite suggestions & kms in between.
Mountain views are good for my soul...& getting to them is good for my waistline !
