Going In - Car park to Wild Dog Creek campsite:-

We did this walk in 2007, now in 2022 we are doing it again with our family of 5 with the youngest just having turned 5.  It's an easy drive into the start of the walk via the Mersey Forrest Road.  Registration is required plus Covid restrictions were in place, but these restrictions are now gone.

The walk is well marked.  The initial stage to Trappers Hut is reasonably steep but flattens out soon after leading to beautiful views.  Starting out at midday we arrived at the Wild Dog Creek Camp around 3:45pm.  Leaving us plenty of time to set up and checkout our surroundings.
