Great walk. I did this overnight as a lazy return up and down Kedumba Valley Rd (as opposed to taking some of the Mt Solitary track) and most people I encountered were doing the same. Descent is easy enough, return ascent is, although not steep, continuous uphill the whole way. Lovely restored historic site at Maxwell’s Slab Hut. Just across the creek is the campground, which is large, spacious and pleasant. Many wallabies, cockatoos and spotted a large goanna too. Many wombat burrows but did not see any. Refilled with water at creek (plenty due to recent rain).

HikingGreat!Over grownRockyWashed out

The track is overgrown in places but it’s a great track! Stopped half way near the camp ground and was surrounded by kangaroos. Had to walk over three creeks also so pack extra socks just in case. The decent into the valley isn’t too bad but remind yourself that you have to walk back up that! That was painful... if you have any knee issues be prepared to hurt the next day. Overall the scenery was amazing, it was a really challenging track which I needed and was great to disconnect from society for 8 hours

I was running this trail and it was tough, 8/10 toughness (anti-clockwise as per the all trails map). The turn off at sublime point was closed but I pressed ahead. The first section (circa 3km-7km mark) is rather technical with lots of rocks to navigate as you navigate your way though the the dense bush. The track is washed out at some points and hard to follow. The first water crossing has two fallen trees, I took the tree to the left and ran straight on through, I eventually hit the track but it was a head scratcher trying to link up. After the first section you will hit a fire trail which then takes you to the valley - but just when you think the pain is over you have to climb back out again don’t you! The run home is all ascent, which never ends and it burns, and it burns. Just for some timing context, I can run a road 20km at circa 4:30km and this trail my average was 7:00km, which certainly did include plenty of walking - overall time 2:10h There is car parking before the turn off to the trail, but we decided to drive down and park near the gate - not many other people did this so I’m not actually sure if you are allowed or not.

Nice trail, a good bit of this is fire trail. The turn off at Sublime point was closed from bushfires, but we went ahead anyway. The trail was washed out near the river but found a log to cross. Recommend staying to the right to reconnect with the trail. Had lunch on the valley with lots of kangaroos. Pretty views and very few other people. Took us 5 hours plus lunch.

Really enjoyed this hike. Two thirds of it were on fire trail, but it was pretty steep which still kept it interesting. We saw kangaroos, wallabies, a goanna and a red bellied black snake! Both campsites the track passes through are nice and would be good options for folks wanting to do this walk over two days.

First to Review

Recommend starting the hike via Sublime Point trail as you'll get incredible views walking towards the mountain range after Kedumba camping ground. I would also recommend this trail for an overnight hike as you camp by the river. This part of the land was also home to the Aboriginals, which you learn about along the way. Note: a large portion of the hike is fire trail - maybe about 13kms. The whole area is beautiful. Highly recommend it.
