Great hike around and over Mt. Cooke in a loop.
Full loop Distance 11km
Moderate to Easy - but caution on the open Granite rock face if WET is very SLIPPERY
Parked cars on gravel road close to base, then walked northerly direction back along the same gravel road that we drove in on and then further around the base to the Bibulmun Track Hut, then followed then Bibulmun Track up and over Mt Cooke and down along the Bibulmun Track to the gravel road to the parked cars.
Spectacular walk. Relentless climb up to Mt Eliza, but brilliant alpine moor walking on top. Some serious rock hopping as you approach the summit block with a non technical climb with some exposure.
I have also done it as part of the Mt Anne circuit, possibly the best high alpine walk in Australia
