An unusual rating of hard/easy is given as any ascent of Mt Bogong with an overnight pack is difficult. BUT given the short distance to the summit from the car park (3km max), and the delicate nature of the leader, we will be taking things very,very easy .The walk does, however involve a 500m climb. On reaching the summit it is but a pleasant 3km stroll along almost flat terrain to Cleeve Cole hut. The hut is sighted in a flat, open, grassy area with available water. An ideal camp site. On arrival, we have the opportunity of a 4km return almost flat, packs off, stroll to Howman Falls. Well worth the effort. Return journey is an absolute doddle as we drop the afore mentioned 500m. Access is via Trappers Gap Track/ Camp Creek Rd, both 4WD access only. At the time of writing the tracks are in good condition.
There are currently 2 places still available in the initial vehicle. Further places will depend on the availability of other 4WD vehicles.
