This trail was brilliant. We did it quickly in 6.5hours and took several breaks, particularly on the way up. It was fun and challenging all at the same time. The changes in scenery from bush, to forest and coming up to the summit with ankle deep snow was amazing. Would happily do again!

Great trail, we walked it as an overnight since we had a longish drive to the start. Spent the night at Biovauc hut area (there’s space to set up a tent and toilets), then summited the second day, highly recommend breaking up the climb. Quite a bit of snow, knee deep in places on the way to the summit. Probably the last few days to hike this circuit this season without snow shoes/ skis. Shallow river crossings on the way back down mountain creek track.

Expect some harsh inclines for the first 6km roughly, my friend and I averaged 5.7 to 6.2kmph for the most part and even though the extra weight of bringing a jet boiler and food was a bit annoying in a already heavy pack I had on nothing beats cooking some food and making a hot coffee at 1600 meters. That said the loose rocks will make for a slow decent back to the 4WD track and starting point. Mount Bogong is well worth the 8-9 hours it will take you but make sure you have a good level of endurance and fitness because you will feel it towards the end. -start early so you have time to sit and appreciate the diversity of the area as you climb through them. -bring at least 3L of water in a hydration bladder and leave extra in the car for later -good set of boots, something light but that fits well to the foot (I used my ALTAM SR 8’) they have really good ankle support and grip but I did have to waterproof them myself -bring some food - thermal layer of clothing, insulating layer and a windbreaker or outer shell for the summit -print the map of the loop and mark each kilometre on it in pen so you can easily gauge how far you have to go and can figure out if you need to hustle up or not.

This is a spectacular trail, the summit offers incredible views of the surrounding Victorian mountain range; well worth the difficulty of the climb up the Staircase Spur! A fairly rugged terrain, especially coming back downhill is quite hard! It will give the knees a good workout, just make sure to mind your step, lots of loose rocks make it easy to slip! But overall, it’s a gem! Definitely a favourite trail of mine!

Relentlessly steep going up Staircase Spur but the views are worth it, and the accomplishment of hiking the tallest mountain in Victoria!

This is my favourite day hike, and a solid buns and thighs workout the whole way! If you’re up for a challenge, a fun and scenic trail to hike with spectacular views than you would love this hike! Very rewarding.

We did this track in late August 2019. We parked at Camp Creek Gap car park then hiked about a kilometre and a half before we needed to strap on our snow shoes for the final kilometre or so to Michell Hut. Here we pitched our tent. We then continued to snow shoe to the top of Mount Bogong before returning to the Hut area for the night. An amazing experience with perfect weather!!

Recommend three days for this one or a very early start to get to Cotter flats before lunch and set up camp to attempt the peak in the afternoon. Two day Hike - Day 1 35km, Day 2 15km. Three Day Hike - Day 1 15km, Day 2 20km, Day three 15km. Trail conditions for the bush bash section to the peak were icy so aim to have this complete before the sun gets too low (May-sept).

favourite place to go stand up paddle boardinging!

Stunning array of vegetation around every turn and the rocks just top it off. Love this walk, and easy to do even in snow.

Awesome area. Definitely test yourself when you hit the snow. I recommend starting from Mount St Gwinear and up to baw baw. You can do a solid 20 kms while going off track and off the main trail.

Great hike, go all the way to Baw Baw and relax with a few beers

Thoroughly enjoyed the Tracks. Went from Mountain Creek to Mount Bogong via the Staircase and came down via Eskdale Spur.

Great hike with some great scenery. In winter the hike is great for testing your skills in the snow without going to far of the beaten track.

Great hike, my knees were super sore coming down tho
