Advance notice – actual date subject to snow levels (ie enough but not too much).

The objective of this walk is to walk up into a light dusting of snow up the top of Buffalo – I think the chalet looks magical with a light dusting on it. We timed this right last year and it was one of my favourite hikes for the year.

The walk starts at the carpark at the Park entry, and climbs steadily to the Gorge, is approx. 22km return and all on well-formed walking tracks.

Risks: even if we don’t have snow, there is likely to be patches of ice on the track higher up (I’ve previously found some and landed heavily on my back!). The track lower down will be slippery on the mud and tree bark (especially the first/last 3km).

Bring a thermos and plenty of winter gear, as it will be cool.
