Push the Bush walk

This is the first hike I've done from the Push the Bush book, loved it.

Mt Misery circuit

Walk 6: This extremely hard walk incorporates sections of the Montacute Conservation Park and the valleys and ridges south of the Kangaroo Creek reservoir and the Thomas Hill forest region. Wonderful views over the Adelaide Plains.

Got a little lost in the Thomas Hill forest region, as the Cudlee Creek Mountain Bike Park has been developed since the book was written, but having ridden there before it wasn't too difficult to reach the final exit track. Had difficulty finding a couple of the tracks, and walked the wrong way immediately before lunch, having to backtrack.
