Follow this lovely self-guided loop track from Three Mile Dam campground as it meanders through snow gum woodlands, across snowgrass flats, and past an abandoned ore-crushing battery.
The scenery is nothing short of spectacular here at any time of year. In spring, it’s remarkable for its carpet of wildflowers, with beautiful displays of yellow billy buttons, white silver snow daisies, and pink grass trigger plants. In winter, it becomes a pristine alpine cross-country skiing or snowshoe track, exciting enough to satisfy any snow-lover.
Along the way, keep your eyes out for small mammals and birds that regularly visit here. The endangered eastern pygmy and ringtail possums make their homes in the hollows of old snow gums, as well as crimson rosellas and gang-gang cockatoos that feed on gumnuts and insect galls in the treetops.
