Weekend trip - this is designed as a training trip covering different skills along the way in doable terrain - river crossing, bushcraft, navigation with an emphasis on leadership skills.  Will need to carry an overnight pack and tents.  Not for beginners and club members will be prioritised for this trip.

Plan:

Friday: Late afternoon travel down and spend the night at Lake Kaniere to give us more time on Saturday.

Saturday: Drive to the start of the track. Spend the day walking in to Ceder flats, practicing and discussing leadership responsibilities. Everyone will have a turn at being a leader. 

Saturday night:  Discussion on trip planning and decision making while out in the hills, (eg) weather, terrain and group ability. 

Sunday:  Return to the cars, practising everything we have learned.
