Track down beside Valentine Falls KNP

Postby rcaffin » Wed 21 Apr, 2021 8:37 pm

There used to be a rough track down beside Valentine Falls going from Valentines Hut to Grey Mare Hut in KNP. Last time we did it it was a bit overgrown, but nothing serious. Um - that was some time ago.
Does anyone know whether it still 'works', or have the fires erased it?

Cheers

It does not still work :)

Its all but been consumed by the regrowth. It is still there underfoot but you need to wade through the waist high and sometimes neck high scrub.

Pre-fires it was definitely there, albeit faint in places, from the hut to below the falls. The fire regrowth has killed it I gather?

Hi Zap

Thanks.
Sigh. Well, it was always a bit of dodgy track.
Oh well, over the top on the FT then.
Cheers

Was there in March, returning from Grey Mare Hut, heading uphill to Valentines Hut via the Falls.
There are a few branches across the route, and the trail comes and goes, but in general if you're use to a little bit of scrub bashing, it's really not that bad, and you always have the creek as your handrail/guide.
