Sudden Valley

A varied walk involving river crossing, riverbed, bush tracks and a small scree climb.

SKU: W052


From Hawdon Shelter cross the Hawdon river and follow Sudden Valley stream up, crossing it at various points to the Bivouac at head of valley. Return same way.

If streams are up you will have a problem crossing at one point where it cuts in against the bank. The trip in/out to biv is approx 6-7 hours depending on the party.
