Damms (Maguires) Bridge - Bringenbrong Bridge Hike 2013

Damms (Maguires) Bridge - Bringenbrong Bridge

23 July 2013 (23.5 km)

I decided to walk along the road for this section. I am not a confident paddler in fast water and since the water temperature was about 6o C I thought it best to walk along the road. Christine drove me to the southern-most end of the Upper Murray Rd to where it terminates at Damms Bridge (also known as Maguires Bridge). Most of the way is on sealed road and the last few kilometres are good unsealed road. From here I walked the 23.5 km back along the road to Bringenbrong Bridge. It took 5 hours with a short stop for lunch. The weather was cloudy and cool, about 10oC, with some ocssional drops of rain. The river was high after recent heavy rain.
