Our route takes us from Cecelia Forest, via Skeleton Gorge to the dams, onto the aqueducts, down the aqueduct to Hely-Hutchinsin dam (swimming option here), over the wall, into Ash Valley down the cement road towards Contstania Nek till the U-bend at the big rock, where we will take a left down the stairs, at the bottom we go straight across down the winding path through the Eucalyptus trees till the contour path above Cecelia Parking. Wiz your way down back to the cars.
