Track Overview

Starting at the Corin Dam Carpark this hike follows the Stockyard Spur Walking Track up to the junction with Mount Franklin Road. At this road take a left and hike past Pryors Hut, along the border with New South Wales to the summit of Mount Gingera (quite a demanding climb), from here turn back on the trail and return to the carpark where the hike began to complete the walk.


If this hike is a little too much of a challenge for you then consider completing the Stockyard Spur Walking Track instead which is a slightly easier version of this walk.


*Please note that this walk is extremely challenging and should only be completed by experienced hikers who have prepared before they set off.
