Additional Information

This route is likely to include fire trail, walking track and some off track. Track grades are medium & hard with some extended steep ascent/decent sections. We recommend this for youth members who have already completed at least one overnight hike & who are comfortable carrying a loaded pack. This involves extended strenuous physical activity and endurance.

Views in the morning should be rewarding. No formal toilet facilities, prepare for bush toileting and hygiene. Toilets are only available at certain locations on the route.
