Embrace Hiking - Full Day Adventure, Berowra to Cowan NSW
Time & Location
About The Adventure
About the Hike: Join Women Embrace Adventure as we explore the ridges and valleys from Berowra Station to Cowan Station. Along this hilly 13- 15 km hike there are plenty of accents and decent to tackle along with excellent views across Berowra Creek providing some great excuses for well deserved rest stops. We will take our time to enjoy the views, rock formations, and creek crossings along the way as the track leads us to Cowan Station, through a wonderfully remote section of bushland. Berowra Waters, is in the middle of the walk and is where we will stop for a rest and a healthy lunch provided by your WEA hosts. We estimate the hike will take approx 7 hours in total, taking into consideration morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea breaks as well as taking time to enjoy our surrounds.
