This four-day autumnal walk in the northern Jagungal Wilderness Area of Kosciuszko National Park explores some of the less visited areas between Round Mountain and Mt Jagungal, as well including the summit of both peaks. Magnificent Mt Jagungal (2062m) is popular among bushwalkers, many of whom consider it be the most outstanding peak in the whole park. The view from the top is one of the best. Over Easter you can therefore expect to see several groups on the summit, many having started from near Round Mountain. While we too will set forth from the same trailhead, the aim is to avoid the crowds by taking a more creative route, and finding more secluded campsites, away from the well-trodden Farm Ridge and Round Mountain fire trail circuit. Along with alpine meadows, snow gum forests, mountain views and many small waterfalls and cascades, a highlight of the trip will be following the Tumut River from near the summit of Mt Jagungal back towards Round Mountain. Distance: 40-60km. Maps: Jagungal & Toolong 1:25,000.
Depending on the availability of transport, there'll be about 8-10 people on this walk selected no later than 23 March from the registration list on the basis of current membership, contribution and overall group experience. If you have not walked with me before I will ask about your outdoor experience (eg have you done an overnight walk before?) and seek assurances of your capacity to safely complete and enjoy this great trip.
