Well marked track. But a GPS was good for the confidence. First half of the track was reasonably easy. Second half was all uphill and steep and slippery. Good day all in all. Long day all told including the drive there. Would definitely recommend a 4WD.

This was a hard one almost from start to finish. Good to have done it. It was a miracle that any survivors were found at all. Very steep in a lot of places. Not much left of the plane. Nice views out to Mt warning if you take a little detour after looking at the crash site.

A rather long walk not to hard just a long slog. Forget trying to stay dry after rain and even before rain as the track criss cross the creek so many times I lost count. Boots and socks were soaked from the bottom of the lookout onwards.
