For those who want to walk the Runnyford Road through the Mogo State Forest, here are some details:
Start from Nelligen Cemetery at the back of the village. If you think walking 21 km could kill you, this is a good time to choose a suitable plot!
From here it is about 1.7 km to the turn-off on the left side of the road where I usually join Runnyford Road, having crossed from "Riverbend" and climbed uphill a good kilometre-and-a-bit.
Another 2.3 km brings you to a fork in the road. Don't turn right onto Bolaro Mountain Road but follow Runnyford Road downhill.
It's another 4.5 km to the Runnymede property - see picture above. I don't know how long it took you to get here but you are too late - almost 800 years too late! - to meet King John as he signs the Magna Carta (you're on the wrong island anyway).
Walk a further 2.7 km and you come to Runnyford Bridge.
You've done a good 11 km, so stop for a while and take a rest. There's the Buckenbowra River to take a dip in; or say 'hello' to the horses in the paddocks. The beautiful property by the bridge has been restored to its former glory and is inhabitated again.
Once you cross the bridge, you're back on gravel and the following 7.5 km to Waterfall Creek, which is next to another large property, are not all that scenic anymore.
From Waterfall Creek it's another 2.3 km to the Princess Highway which you join about 5 km south of Batemans Bay.
