I think its worth pointing out this section out to any hikers behind us, not that it was really that difficult (just unpleasant), but because this short section seemed out of character from the rest of the Russell Walkway, which made us think we were either off trail or had missed a re-route. Trust me it is the way, just keep plowing through, it gets much better once you’re off the 4×4 track, the path section down Pukemoremore (still cracks me up) has steps built and everything!
Keep your waterproofs handy, you’ll need some protection from all that gorse, although it can get pretty hot hiking midday in a humid forest, all togged up and the sun beating down..
