Places:Start at N98048 00380, Corriebracks, Lobawn, end at Start Logged as completed by 1
This route takes in the flattish Corriebracks reaching there via the site of a tragic plane crash in 2008 (for more on that see the entry for Corriebracks - there is no a small plinth there).
Descend from there to a col with multiple tracks and then on SW via some good tracks. You enter private land at one point which is permitted and in fact the route goes through a farmyar which is at the SW corner of the track show. Say hello to the owners who allow walkers to go through.
The route up Lobawn is at an easy uniform slope and the Lobawn ridge itself has good views if being somewhat broad and sometimes boggy.
This route turned left to return to the start, however you can extend the walk towards Table Mountain or beyond if desired.
