Begin walking on Major Clews Hut walking track, located on Alpine Way, about 16 kilometres south of Khancoban. You’ll travel past alpine ash, wattle blooming in abundant yellow flashes, and montane forests balancing atop craggy ridgelines. Feel the temperature drop as you trek down into the park’s gullies, and soak up the amazing views, both pristine and varied.

After hiking eight kilometres in a north-westerly direction, you’ll reach Major Clews Hut on the left – don’t forget to take a good look at this historic alpine hut. It was built in the late 1950s for the eponymous Major, a surveyor for the Snowy Mountain Scheme. Return along the same track (uphill).

If you're driving or riding, you can connect with Geehi Walls track for around 27 kilometres, which loops back to meet Alpine Way, 12 kilometres south of your start point.
