Name:
Log Slide Canyon
Description:

Is located on the western side off Petries Gully, 700m from the Wolgan River junction. So named as hand chiseled square holes that march in order at 1m intervals on a constant slope down each side of the canyon. In places carefully selected and measured logs still span the canyon. There are several examples of cross beams wired to each other as they collectively formed the support trusses for the deck of the slide. The detailed engineering is amazing. Named by Brian Fox, Michael Keats and Yuri Bolotin on a Bush Club walk, 13th March 2015
