       I only decided to try this trail when coming back on Back to Base I saw the sign “50 Shades naughty but nice”. I’m sure glad I did. This trail has got great variety with steep gullies, some flow and some rocky sections (as it skirts around black apples and bad apples). Another great Tathra trail.
