Brief – Day 5
Day 5 – approximately 4.6km (moderate)
Time on track – approximately 2 hours 15 minutes including breaks
Sadly, today is the last day, so don’t miss the sunrise if weather permits. It’s also the shortest day. Enjoy your breakfast while soaking in the last views of Craig’s Hut, King Valley and the surrounding mountains. By now you already know how much you are going to miss this stunning part of the world and hopefully you will be inspired enough to return.
It’s a relatively easy day with the first half heading uphill and the second half downhill all the way to your final destination. When you reach the end, you can give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.
It’s about 1 hour drive back to Merrijig, arriving at the Merrijig Motor Inn around 12:15pm, just in time to shout yourself a rewarding lunch.
