YANKEE HAT SOUTH

YANKEE HAT SOUTH

Sun 26th May 2024

Completed

Walk

We start at Yankee Hat car park, following the old walking track to cross the Gudgenby grassland and Bogong Creek, this is a wet and muddy crossing. We follow the track for a short while and then head off track NW and ascend up between Yankee Hat North and South. We should reach the summit about mid-day for lunch, its quite exposed and can be cold but the views are well worth it, you can just see the Snowy Mtns on a clear day. The regrowth is heavy so be prepared for a lot of bush bashing and some rock scrambling. We returning to the valley floor and on to the cars by the same route.
The regrowth since the fires make to a hard walk and a long day, please consider your fitness when deciding if this walk is for you. The timings incl driving time.

Terrain information

The track is good allowing for a fast pace. We have 1 wet crossing at Bogong creek, we can leave our creek crossing footwear somewhere safe and collect on our return. The ascent is through some thick scrub with rock scrambling and will therefore much slower. Gloves and gaiters recommended.
