After leaving Wodonga on Friday afternoon about 3.30 PM we arrive at the Round Mountain car park about 6.30.
The Round Mountain Hut is about two kilometres from the car park, this is where we will spend our first night.
The next day we walk generally south on the Grey Mare Trail to O’Keefes Hut. A little further on we leave the trail to climb Mount Jagungal.
At 2,061 metres Mount Jagungal is the seventh-highest mountain in Australia and is the dominant peak in the ‘Jagungal Wilderness Area’.
The actual climb of the mountain is a gradual slope except for a little rock hopping at the end.
After returning to the trail and retreiving our packs we’ll walk to Derschko’s Hut and camp there overnight.On Sunday an easy walk will see us back at the cars and on our way home.
Apart from the actual climb of Mt Jagungal the entire walk, about 34 kilometres, is on a well formed track. Derschko’s Hut about 20 k’s into the walk.
