South Wellington to Milles

Tuesday 16 February 2021

In fairly ideal conditions, a bit of cloud for the ascent up the Ice House Track then sunny but moderate temperature for the remainder of the walk. The pad was still mostly easy to follow but some sections are becoming overgrown, especially where there is Bauera. It is not maintained and will likely continue to the point where it has to be pushed through in the thicker vegetated parts.

Lunch was soon after reaching the Potato Fields and from this spot the extent of the scree was impressive as was the swath of Eucalypt forests.

The last occasion I went on this walk was in March 2014.

The distance was 10k and took us 6 hours.
