Meeting Friday morning 8am outside Corryong Visitor Information Centre or 9am at Round Mt Trailhead.
Day 1 Hike from Round Mt trailhead on the Khancoban-Cabramurra Rd to Derschko's Hut 13.9km on the Round Mountain Trail.
Day 2 Hike 10.1km to the Creek campsite. Option to summit Mt Jagungal on the way which adds an extra 5km.  Can either leave large backpacks beside the track (cover with a pack cover or garbage bag) and use a daypack to summit, or take your big pack with you if you can scramble over rocks with it and want punishment!
Day 3 Hike 12.4km on Farm Ridge Trail back to the trailhead. Quite an arduous climb, especially if hot. Water shoes needed to cross the Tumut River
 
Depending on weather conditions and how the group is travelling, there is also the option to camp at O'Keefe's Hut on the first night and the Tumut River on the 2nd night.
 
WHAT TO BRING - Water shoes for river crossings
If the weather is warm, it is very exposed with hardly any shade, so you will need 
                              - Broad brimmed hat, sunscreen, electrolytes
                              - March fly repellant/fly net for hat
Night time temperatures will most likely still be very chilly.

GRADE 4

Bushwalking experience recommended. Tracks may be long, rough and very steep. Directional signage may be limited.
