The walk will start at Heathy Spur after a short car shuffle to our end point at Watchbed Creek.  We will follow Heathy Spur track to where it meets the Big River Fire Trail. Turning left, we will walk to the turn off to Edmondson Hut, where we will drop our packs on the main track and detour into the hut. Returning to our packs we then pass Mt Nelse and Mt Nelse North, Warby Corner and the turn off to Timms Lookout. From here Ropers Hut is only about 1km. After setting up camp it’s up to you what you do. On Sunday we will walk to the cars at Watchbed creek and on the way visit Johnstons Hut. We should be back at the cars and down to Mt Beauty for a late lunch, before heading home.
