Mt Bogong via Eskdale Spur Walking Track (Alpine National Park)

Eskdale Spur Walking Track is a popular and challenging route to the summit of Mt Bogong. It is a steep rocky and exposed climb with little shade as you get higher. This means the views are spectacular from the walk and on the summit but be careful to protect yourself during summer from the sun and in winter from snow and high winds. Carry sufficient water for your needs as there is only a small water tank at Michelle Hut approximately half way up that supplies untreated water and may at times be dry.
