Getting there

Located not too far from Mt Barney, coming from Upper Logan Rd turn right onto Seidenspinner Rd. Follow that road for 1.5kms, then turn right down a dirt road where you will eventually come to a gate. You can either park here, or continue down further (making sure to close the gate behind you) until you get to a Private Property gate (photo in description). It appears that so long as you don't go past this 2nd gate, you are not crossing private property, and there is space to park here without blocking the gate.

Route/Trail notes

From the parking area, continue along the 4wd track (Not the driveway leading into private property). You will cross a creek and then around 30 meters later you will see trees on your left with red and white tape. Get off the 4wd track and head up to the left until you reach the top of the ridge (this part is pretty well trackless). Once you reach the top of the ridge you should be able to see the river below and a side profile of Mt Barney. From here it's just a matter of following the ridge to the top of the peak - the track becomes more pronounced the further you go. Along the way, and at the top you will get fantastic views of Barney, May and Maroon.

Comments

Not a bad little hike with great views along the way. It's not as high as its neighbors, but it gives a great perspective of them all. The area was badly burnt during the fires and I think the track suffered as a result. However the terrain is quite open so don't have to do any bushbashing. Bit of spider web bashing though. Nice walk if you don't want to tackle one of the larger mountains but still want to check out the area. GPS would be good, but probably not totally necessary if you are experienced hiking in areas with faint tracks.
