This was another enlightening forest walk led by Ian, this time through the forests west of Termeil.  We started on Middle Ridge Road and walked the historic Old Coach Road northward and up hill to Boyne Trig.  From there are views east towards the Tabourie on the coast.  On the way we saw some yellow bellied glider feeder trees, turpentines, blue gums, yellow stringybarks and mountain grey gums.

Ian’s trademark is a good long section of no track exploring, so we then left the road, and headed down a ridge through bush.  It was quite steep and we encountered a few rocky shelves hiding recently flowering orchids.  We stopped at the bottom next to a creek for lunch, and then returned through more forests, some recently logged, some logged long ago, to the cars.  On checking the GPS we found we had clocked 14 kms.  Thanks Ian.
