We are planning to have a camp out weekend at Oldfields Hut. This will be a good base camp for us to visit Mt Morgan and Bimbiri Peak. We will travel in on the Friday evening to the locked gate, (42km from Snowy Mountains Hwy) and do the short walk in, approx 3km (1 hr) to set up our base.
For our first trek to Mount Morgan we head south – east for 6km on the Lone Pine trail and up on foot pad 2km south West up to Mt Morgan. Return will be by the same route for a total of 16km.
On the second day we will try Mount Bimberi. This will see us walking 4km west to Murrays Gap, then along the ridge line 3km northeast to Mt Bimberi. Then back out to cars at the gate. Total distance for this day will be approx 18km.
It will be interesting to see how the bush is recovering from the bushfires last summer.
