As Ian’s walk didn’t go ahead due to road closures last November
I’ll try again, {using Ian’s blurb}.

My last visit to “our” hut was just before Winter set in, so this will be an opportunity to see how she has fared in our absence. Young’s Hut is a rustic former SEC survey hut that our club maintains in conjunction with Parks Victoria. The walk will start from Pretty Valley Pondage, follow the Fainters Fire Trail for a few kms before heading cross country to Pole 333, past Mt Jim on the track leading to the hut, a distance of approx. 8.5kms. Return journey is via the same route with a possible side trip to Mt Jim. We should have great views to Mt Hotham, the Razorback and Mt Feathertop and may see some brumbies. Walk is both on and off track, with a couple of short steep climbs, and is very exposed across the top.
