7th April 2019 – Solo explore from Broken Hills Campsite up Paton Stream Dam Track to Hihi, Detouring to the Dam returning via the mine Tunnel which is about 500m long. Took me longer to descend down from Hihi than to walk up it (lots of tree roots, loose soil). Track condition is otherwise good, though muddy at the top on approach towards Hihi clearing.
Side track to Paton stream Dam is very steeply undulating (not apparent in the Topomaps). Suggest hiding bags somewhere off the Intersection and taking may be at least a camera. Opportunities exist for a dip under the mini waterfall.
