Lower Salmon Creek Bivvy, Oxford Forest Conservation Area

Delightful small bivvy not far from the creek, but man, this is the middle of not much. A long, steep drop down, mostly through beech forest, from Black Hill, 1335 m. If you are coming from another direction, well, good luck.

No insulation, or heating, or even direct sunlight, so it’s cold in winter. Frank King and Honora Renwick have adopted the bivvy, and spent much time in many trips over the years, mostly dealing to the track that DOC has now abandoned. Also painting. Thanks team.
