Be ready for mud and trail that is tough to follow at times. But fun to do and a good adventure!

It was muddy, but due to the cold weather some bits were frozen, so we were fine in regular boots, though I could see it getting messy if the climate was warmer.
However, Milo my French bulldog was in desperate need of a bath afterwards.

The hike took us longer than expected because we had to manoeuvre around the puddles but that was half of the fun! It was neat to see the old plane sitting there among the trees. After a cup a tea to warm us up and a few photo ops we made our way back.

Overall we had a great time doing this hike and would definitely do it again. It was a wonderful way to spend Christmas Eve!

It is a muddy hike but worth it to see that plane sitting there on the side of the mountain

You will need to park at Radar Hill and hike 1/2 ml along the highway. No places to park on the road. Also need knee hi boots bc the mud is that deep.

We went on a rainy, rainy day and everyone said, don't go when it's raining, cos it's muddy enough already. But we had so much fun.
Follow the tags and ropes after you get to the bog.

Sometimes tricky trail, but well worth the effort of finding the shortest paths through mud to get to the plane.

The hike is fun as you try not to fall into the mud and the plane is incredible.

so much fun navigating around the mud and to find this at the end of the trail!

A difficult hike through lots of mud!! Well worth it though as the destination is fabulous. Definitely need hiking boots.
The trail starts easily enough and you go through an abandoned building (a bit weird, but legit) before continuing on through the bogs.

Great hike but pretty difficult to make it to the plane. Wear rain boots!
