Drive time: 30 mins from town center.
Drive up the steep windy dirt road (good tires and 4 x 4 recommended) just past the yellow 21 km marker, park at the cattle guard. The trail starts on the mountain side of the road by an old fence.
Follow the double track all the way to a landing at the first view point about 1 hour of hiking. 3 km and 1125 meters height of land.
The trail continues way up to the fire hut that can be seen from the first look out which is on top of the highest peak. The trail to the hut will be faint in places and pushes the rating of the hike to difficult.
Keep a watchful eye for wildlife. We saw a group of sheep, a few deer…and this 80 lb wolverine near the top!
