There are self-guided or 'lead' training walks conducted locally in the Blue Mountains which are held the last Saturday of the month to coincide to finish at Glenella Guesthouse, 56 Govetts Leap Rd, Blackheath in time for the Camino Meet-up which starts at 4.00pm - 6.00pm at Glenella. See What's On for dates of Camino Meet-ups and other events.
In the past the walks commenced at Glenella and we either walked to Medlow Bath or Mt Victoria and return after a short refreshment break at either destination. Now we are more adventureous with longer distances from a few kms to around 18kms taking approx 4 or so hours. Walks are a combination of walking besides the highway or streets and well delineated bush tracks whilst taking in beautiful scenery.
All walkers should come prepared wearing suitable shoes/boots, have ample water and snacks (some walks you may need to bring you own lunch as there may not be any shops until you return to Blackheath), hat, sunscreen, rain jacket/poncho and especially in the colder months wear warm clothing (layers are best). You probably should carry some bandaids, leukloplast or similar just in case.
All walkers are responsible for their own personal safety and well being.
