After my last trip to Ryder’s Yards I want to return – it was that good! This walk is an easy 6kms out to the huts at the yards, all on track and is eminently suitable for first time overnighters. The walk follows the Australian Alps Walking Track from Cope Hut, passes Cope Saddle Hut and then along a track beside the viaduct. Last time it took us two hours walking at a very leisurely pace.

There are plenty of level grassy places to pitch your tent, an ample water supply and a very comfortable hut where we can cook our meals and socialise. If it’s hot (or not) we can take a short walk and a bit of a bush bash down to some secret falls where there is a beaut swimming hole. I suggest you bring your bathers!

If you are worried that you may not be properly equipped, remember you can hire gear from Adventure Gear, Albury or we can rustle up whatever you might need from other members. I hope as many ‘first timers’ as possible can join me for this little adventure!
