It will be almost 12 months to the day since we last visited “our” hut 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 18kms.  Return journey is via the same route.  We should have great views to Mt Hotham, the Razorback and Mt Feathertop and will probably meet the resident mob of brumbies. If the weather is hot (or not) we’ll take a short hike down the valley from the hut to the hidden waterfall and cool off. (Bring your bathers, or not!) Walk is both on and off track, with a couple of short steep climbs, and is very exposed across the top.

Someone might like to lead a Day Walk on the same day and join us.
