The walk commences at the car park near Lake Fenton and crosses Lady Barron Creek. After about 1.1 km a junction is reached. Take the track to Seager's Lookout for good views. Retrace back to the junction and continue climbing steadily to Windy Moor which can be wet after rain. Cross Windy Moor and continue on to reach a junction at the base of Mount Field East. Climb Mount Field East over boulders and scree for excellent views. Follow track back to the junction and descend to Lake Nicholls. About 2.0 kms past Lake Nicholls take the Old Pack Track back to the car park walking along the road for short distances a couple of times.Mount Field east can be accessed as an out and back walk from a lower car park.Show more

This is a variation to the usual Tarn Shelf walk as it leaves the main shelf  to cross a saddle to the prominent peak overlooking Lake Seal.  There is also a fault line that can be entered for a close up view. The walk does involve a bit of a trudge up to the Mawson Plateau and the return is back the same way.  From Lake Dobson the good quality track follows the shoreline before climbing gently on the Urquhart Track to meet the jeep road.  This 4wd track is not the ideal way to get to the alpine area of Mt Field, but at the moment is the only way up from this area.  A walking track leaves this near a ski lodge and meets a boardwalk that goes most of the way to a junction with the Tarn Shelf Track.  The undulating track along the shelf is followed to Johnson Tarn and from there it is only pads which are most prominent in the thicker scrub areas on the ascent to Mount Bridges.Show more
