After another 760 m find the "Guthega Pondage" (50 m on your right).
Guthega Dam collects the water from Blue Cow Creek, Guthega River and the Snowy River. The dam has been built to provide the water and pressure to drive the Guthega Power Station. The water is carried to the power station via the Guthega pressure tunnel (and pipeline). This dam is 33m high and 137m across at the top, and stores up to 1550 megalitres of water.
After another 1.6 km find the "Guthega View" (on your right).
Guthega view is an informal lookout point, east of Guthega Trig. The flat area marked with a couple of boulders provides a great view (in clear weather) to the south, down the ridge to Guthega Village and dam. The area can be a great place to rest at the top of the ridge, giving a chance to enjoy the scattering of snow gums and if you look carefully in the grasses, you may spot some unusual fungus.
(Guthega Trig) Continue another 100 m to find the end. Then turn around here and retrace the main route for 2.9 km to get back to the start.
About 25 m past the end is "Guthega Trig".
Guthega Trig is found on a granite outcrop at about 1865m (AMSL) between Guthega River and Falls Creek. In clear weather, there are great views down along Guthega River to Guthega Dam and the surrounding hills (Mount Twynam and Tate). The actual trig station has fallen off the top of the knoll and lies between some boulders on the eastern side of the outcrop.
