This is an overnight walk that was cancelled earlier in 2019  due to fires.

Leaving Friday early afternoon, we will drive to CampCreek via Trappers Gap road. This becomes a 4WD track that is not officially graded but only 4WDs will be driven.

Leaving the cars at Camp Creek, we will walk 2.5kms up Eskdale Spur, gaining about 500metres. So – not so easy in elevation, but easy in distance ! We have all afternoon to plod to Michell’s hut, and I will be leading from behind.

Saturday morning we will be up early and take a slow pace, still going up, gaining 360 metres over 2kms to the top of Bogong. From here we hope to walk approximately another 2 kms to the West Peak, which I’ve been told is quite obvious, but with no marked track. All helpful advice will be welcomed. Newly acquired navigational skills may be tested !

Once Bogong has been conquered, we spend another night at Michell’s hut, before the slow walk down Sunday morning.

The campsites are limited at Michell’s hut, so consider sharing with a friend.
