PLEASE NOTE EARLY BOOKING DATE
This is a walk I led many years ago while doing the BMLC.  It’s an overnight walk, but can be extended to two nights if you don’t have to turn up to work on the Monday.  Cars are left at StrawberrySaddle, and we walk a couple of k’s down to Faithfull’s Hut  following old cattle pads and the creek.  A leisurely afternoon walk down to the nearby waterfall after lunch.  Sunday morning we walk back up past the cars and onto the flank of Mt Cope, seeking out a stand of ancient snow gums, moving on to the summit for lunch.  Then it’s down towards Ryders Yards, but turning back at the aqueduct and heading back to the road via brumby/cattle pads, again along the flank of the hill wending through the scrub.  Back to Faithfull’s for tea, while those heading home pick up their cars  at the road.  On the Monday it’s a leisurely morning brekky, a stroll around the area, then back up to the cars and home.  Due to off-track work, this is a fine weather walk only.
All up 14km.
