Brief – Day 5
Day 5 – 4.1km (moderate)
Time on track – approximately 2 hours including stops and breaks
Sadly, today is the last day and also the shortest and easiest. Your pack will also be lightest on this day as by now you would have eaten most of your food and you will not need to carry much water either. Since you will not have far to go, there is no rush this morning. You will have an opportunity to relax over your breakfast and reflect on the last four days. By now you already know how much you are going to miss this stunning part of the world and hopefully you will be planning a return trip.
Leaving Craig’s Hut at 9:00am, you will follow the Clear Hills Track for approximately 1.5km up to The Monument. This is your last ascent on this five day adventure. From The Monument it is all downhill along The Monument Track to Circuit Road where you started five days ago. However, there are some steeper sections on this descent and your body will be tired, so take care where you step, how you step, and do not rush. Enjoy the last part of this five day adventure as much as possible.
On arrival at Circuit Road, you can give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.
From here you will be transferred back to Merrijig just in time to shout yourself a rewarding pub meal.
