Thanks to Dayna for this great blog post on the 1000 steps in Melbourne. I’m off to do the track and haven’t done this one in a while so was curious as to which route to take. I think one loop of the old and one loop of the new will do the trick! I’m taking a group of nine adventurers from Inspired Adventures for a training trek. An excellent way to test whether you’re ready for the Great Wall of China, the mountains of Nepal or the heights of Kilimanjaro!
Just because you’ve done something once before, doesn’t mean you can do it again – without directions, at least.
Which is how we came to be walking by some very nice houses on Kia Ora Parade (with some other locationally challenged walkers) wondering which turn we should/shouldn’t have made to get to the 1000 Steps. But lets rewind a bit and I’ll explain…
It’s not long now until we’re off to Wilsons Prom to walk down to the lighthouse. My office day job provides, as you might imagine, ideal training for a 20-24km hike (probably to be repeated 3 days in a row, unless we’re too knackered on the middle day). The slightly downhill 3km walk home of an evening has also really helped to boost my confidence.
Even so, we though a bit of extra practice wouldn’t go astray.
We’ve been meaning to go back to One Tree Hill…
