Helena to Waalegh
11th September 2016
The Hike - Helena is one of those spots you wake up at and don't feel like leaving. Unless you are planning on triple hutting that day, there is always time to spend a little extra time making yourself a warm beverage and sitting out on the granite platform to watch the sun rising over the valley. As I mentioned in the last post, this is just one of those special places that makes you slow down and appreciate how lucky we are to have the Bibbulmun Track as essentially a free escape from our urban lifestyles (but please donate if you can). Not to spoil the ending of this post but this luckily won't be the only campsite in the Darling Range where you'll get to experience this magic. Once you've enjoyed your morning cuppa and packed away all your gear, the first obstacle is the climb out of the campsite on that steep gravel track.
