Nice moderate walk on fire trails. Don't be deterred by the council locked gate at the start into the catchment area, tread lightly and leave no trace. Be sure to check map at intersections. I would suggest to turn at Simpson's track and head to ten mile hollow, it's not worth doing the out and back section to the weir. Tank water and toilet available at campsite.
