Mt Tibrogargan

Lake Judd

This walk starts at the car park off Scots Peak Rd. It is a reasonably flat walk through a forest and then across a lot of button grass swamps, which is hard going, but the views across the swamps to Mount Anne make it enjoyable. The track itself is reasonably well marked with a few sections that require a bit of navigational skills. The final section is uphill to get to Judd Lake, but not too difficult. At the lake there is a fairly large flat area for camping next to the lake.
