We stashed the bikes in these bushes after riding 16km up 600m. That took less than two hours.
There is a trail there somewhere. We pass through a section of stinging nettles. I put on long pants brought just for that reason. It works mostly but not completely.
We reach the stream that used to be our landmark. I haven't been here for 10 years or so.
We somehow took a wrong turn coming back. I had the GPS on but it kept timing out the screen and going to zoomed out. We were maybe 50 meters off the trail but down a very steep slope of the ridge and in thick undergrowth. With GPS tracking got back on the track. Erik a convert to GPS useage.
Got back and found the bicycles still hidden , loaded them up. and coasted home for an hour.
