Early Friday morning we will drive to the Mt Loch car park and make our way down to Dibbins Hut. We will then follow the Cobungra River, Swindlers Creek to our campsite at the bottom of Paling Spur.

We continue following the Cobungra past the Brandy Creek fire trail downstream to a nice campsite in a remote area of the park. There is a great swimming hole here. (Please note there are lots of river crossings in this section).

Today we will follow an old bridal trail up to Mc Namaras Dinner Plain hut. From here we will follow the Young’s Hut trail to our overnight camp situated in a beautiful valley amongst some old snow gums.

On our last day we will walk through some beautiful frost hollows and old snow gums. From a distance we will glimpse Young’s Hut as we make our way down Paling Spur. We will cross the Cobungra River one last time before making the assent up the Brandy Creek Fire trail to the cars.
