Saturday morning drive (180 K from Albury), with a short car shuffle between  the Tooma Dam finish and the track head start on the Snakey Plain fire trail. Then  at about 1 PM. walk the 7K to Wheelers Hut. Day 2 is cross country  9 K to Pretty Plain Hut, beautifully reconstructed after the fires. Day 3 is 13 K along the Dargals Fire Trail to Tooma Dam, visiting Patons Hut on the way . There is about 4K off track and at least two creek crossings and one crossing of the Tooma River which, if running a banker with snow melt ( unlikely given the poor season)  may mean returning to Wheelers and exiting north along the Snakey Plain fire trail. The road to Cabramurra is already open so access is not a problem.
