Hard track
Starting at the Carr-Villa hut just off Ben Lomond Road in Ben Lomond National Park, this walk takes you to the Alpine Village and back via the Summit Pass and Summit Link tracks. You'll walk through a eucalypt forest before reaching the highest point of the track, Legges Tor, and the track starts descending. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
