    This walk starts at the Stimson Park campground with a walk along the Gap Creek dirt road to the Stock Yards. You need permission from the landowner to cross his property on parts of this walk. Through a national park posted gate, it is an uphill walk to a small hut, toilet, picnic table and rusted old Ute.

    There are two ways from here, a 4wd road is obvious but we took the way behind the hut where there is a break in the fence line. From there it is a very steep long walk up to the Ridgeline on slippery dirt and grass, not much of a trail. A geocache is found on the way.

    Once at the top, we turned right onto the ridge line and were rewarded with views of Buchanan Fort, Mt Lindsay, Mt Maroon, and eventually Mt Barney. Mt Warning was barely visible in the distance. The ridge is narrow but not that exposed as the slopes on each side are steep but not sheer. Eventually after a few rock scrambles we reached the main peak, a wide grassy knoll.

    Rather than return the same way, we descended directly from the peak down a incredibly steep 'ridge'. It was so steep our party spent most of the time sliding down on our backsides. Walking down was nearly impossible to stay upright. The way down here was slippery grass and dirt.

    Eventually this returned us directly to a point on Gap Creek Road near the camping ground.

    It was a great day out, and I noticed this was actually the walk recorded by Dave and Gina, and I was on the same walk. Small world 😉
