The Feathertop Sunset/ full moon walk for December had to be cancelled so I thought I’d try for one that’s a bit easier to organize and do.

On Tuesday we will walk from Watchbed Creek Trachead (Falls Creek) to Edmonsons Hut.  This involves gently climbing 4 kms of fire trail and then dropping down to the hut on a footpad.  After setting up camp and having dinner we will then go back up to the fire trail and walk about 2kms to Mt Nelse.  The final 500m up  Nelse is also a footpad.  This can be done with a day pack or a much lighter overnight pack. Hopefully there will be a wonderful sunset to enjoy.

We will walk back to our camp site, hopefully aided by the light of the moon but torches and spare batteries are essential.

On the Wednesday we will head back to the cars via Heathy Spur 6.5 kms of footpad.  Hopefully we can arrange to have a car there and then get drivers back to their cars.  Otherwise it’s a 2km walk beside the road.

There is also the possibility of walking 5km up to Ropers Lookout without our full packs at the end if people still have the energy.
