Cape to Cape Day 05 – Conto's Campsite to Deepdene

Cape to Cape Index

The Boranup Karri Forest


Cape to Cape Track I was very eager to get away from the crowds of Canto's Campsite that morning, so I packed up my hammock quickly and skirted the hoards of campervans and oversized (and excessive) tents in order to make my way out of the campgrounds. I arrived at the sign outside the entrance and turned left down the trail, circumventing the boundaries of the massive campsite. The trail was refreshingly thin here and undulated around the bushland for approximately 900 metres or so with views opening up of the beautiful green carpets of the canopies of trees off in the distance to my right. I reached a junction that branched off left back to Canto's (that is how big the campgrounds were!) and right descending into the woods along a firebreak that carved through the foliage as far as my eye could see.

Mount Stong, Mount Ayam, and Mount Baha

Baha's Camp - Mount Stong, Mount Ayam, and Mount Baha - Stong Waterfall

Hiking to the Peaks


The group had split with Taner, Jenna and I eager to hike to the three peaks whilst the others decided to stay behind and explore the waterfalls. By the time the three of us set off from Baha Camp it was already 10:26. We made our way to the crossroads that lay just outside the campsite quickly to avoid any guides that may still be lingering around the camp just in case they tried to prevent us from heading up to the summits 'unguided'. Once we arrived at the crossroads, we turned left following the signpost that said 'Gunung Stong. Gunung Ayam'. Read more

Trail 9A (Cameron Highlands)

Cameron Highlands Index

The Plan


The initial plan was to head for the Robinson Waterfall for some rest and relaxation after the morning's trek to Mount Brinchang. The beginning of trail 9 that lead to the waterfall began at the side of a road that lay nearby the MARDI center (conducts research in agriculture, food and agro-based industries), just after turning right at a T-junction before one reaches the hospital.
