SIX FOOT TRACK TREK – NEW SOUTH WALES
2 Day Pack Free Weekend Trek
The Six Foot Track trek was a great challenge.
It was great to get out of my comfort zone and do something that pushed me physically. Being up in the Blue Mountains for two days, and meandering among some amazing scenery, all while getting “gains”, and being out with some friends and fellow explorers made for a brilliant experience. The two-day trek is one that pushes the boundaries, making you work hard to beat it. With rough terrain, hills and valleys, all part of the journey, the Six Foot Track is a challenge worth tackling.
It was awesome to get up there with the Peak Potential Adventures team, Shane Pophfer, Darren Wise and Mitchell Morley, who made the whole thing possible. Thanks so much for pushing me guys – it would have been tough to get through it without all of the encouragement, confidence and support from you.
Highlights of the trek included beating Heartbreak Hill on day one, to make our way to the beautiful Eco Lodge, and relaxing in the cool water, which was well deserved after the 30km trek through the mountains on day one of the Six Foot Track. The suspension bridge, which really kicked off day two was a lot of fun and made for a great photography spot, while the final challenge of the trek, “Dummy Spit Hill,” made me work to finish. It was tough, but beating it was so, so sweet.
I believe that each of us have our ‘own mountains to climb’. For me the Six Foot Track trek enabled me to say that age is a number and with a healthy body and mind you can achieve what you want to do, if you just get out there and do it.
The two day overnight trek from Jenolan caves to Katoomba (30kms on day 1 and 16 on day 2) enabled me to see some magnificent countryside, overcome my fear of all things wobbly and high (suspension bridge) and challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone.
Darren Wise and Shane Pophfer (Peak Potential Adventures) are a dynamic team who ensured that through their expertise and forward planning that we all could accomplish this trek.
I have no reservation in recommending this Six Foot Track trek to those who want to explore the Blue Mountains whilst challenging oneself. Many laughs were had (thank you Shane), the food was great, the sleepover at the Eco Lodge pleasant (thank you Willi).
The Six Foot Track trek with Peak Potentials Adventures was an experience that I am proud and pleased to have had and I am looking forward to experiencing more of the same with Darren and Shane. Hopefully the rest of team are thinking of more treks as they were a great group to be with!
I had a great time doing the the Six Foot Track trek with Peak Potential Adventures and is the perfect trek to train for something bigger or simply to unplug for the weekend.
The Six Foot Track trek run by Peak Potential Adventures is an overnight weekend trek that goes from Jenolan Caves to Katoomba in The Blue Mountains and covers a total distance of 46km over the two days.
We stayed overnight in a private Eco lodge that was nestled on the beautiful Coxs River and were treated to a beautifully cooked dinner and breakfast the next morning.
Shane Pophfer and Darren Wise are a pleasure to deal with and truly experts in their field with attention to detail, safety and service second to none.
The Six Foot Track is both fun and challenging over two days with plenty of food to keep the energy up and comfortable overnight accommodation.
Great bunch of people and enjoyment was had by all. I would highly recommend this adventure.
