Natural Vegetation Growth
Devils Throne Track
Tuesday 6 February 2018
The hoped-for approval for a planned track reroute had not managed to get through the relevant local councils, so plan B was adopted. A short section of pruning refinement and a section of rocks was made easier to cross on the new Devils Throne section of track, but most of our effort was put into clearing the exuberant growth of native vegetation further along the track. At some spots we had to stop and locate the path of the track hidden, particularly by Orites revolutus which seems to thrive up on the mountain.

At the previous event In January 150m had been cleared and on this occasion a further 400m was cleared. Some 640m remain to be done.
