Day 1 – approximately 6.90km (challenging) Time on track – approximately 4 hours 15 minutes including breaks
Depart Merrijig Motor Inn immediately after the briefing session at 11:00am. Your vehicle will remain parked at the Motor Inn car park for the duration of the hike.
Travel approximately 30 minutes to the start of the track. Part of the drive is on an unsealed road. Packed lunch will be ready for you to enjoy along the way.
With backpack and snowshoes on, you will be ready to embark on a fully guided, adventure packed, snowshoe hike. You will wind your way through beautiful Alpine Ash forest, along well maintained cross country ski trails, to one of Mt Stirling refuge huts, where you will set up camp. With the potbelly stove fired up, the hut’s cosiness will lure you in for the evening. Enjoy your dinner, soak up the warmth, read a book, interact with your fellow hikers or just relax, before heading to your tent armed with hand and toe warmers.
