This walk follows the shadows of the original telegraph poles set up 75 years ago to service the Falls Creek village.
Beginning at Howmans Gap on the Bogong High Plains Road at 1235m, after a short 300 meters stretch along the road the track quickly climbs 450 meters through the montane forests around Falls Creek, on wards and upwards to the sub-alpine forests and onto the wild flowers of the alpine open plains around the summit of Falls Creek. After a wonderful flattish 2km walk through the early summer alpine wild flowers with sweeping views of Mt. Feathertop, the Fainters and Mt. Bogong we then descend towards the Alpine village and onto the historic Pack Horse track back towards Howmans gap. All up this historic walk is about 11km long and climbs steeply 450 meters.
