Good Afternoon All,

Well I finally pickup the Terracan on Tuesday and we are heading up to Mansfield on Friday for the weekend.

What are your recommendations on tracks in the region.

Has anyone been that way lately? Has the bit of rain affected it much and are most tracks still open.

Not looking for anything too difficult just yet, need to get to know the "Jerrycan" first.

Gaday Jim. An easy drive to get to know your new bus would be to take Carters rd (from Sawmill settlement) up to Mt # 3 & Razorback hut, drop down to Pineapple flat then up the King river. Loop around the Little Cobbler track camping up at Cobbler lake. There are a couple of short walks to the nearby falls. On the Sunday take the staircase track (if you like a challenge) dropping down to King hut again then up to Craigs hut via the circut rd. The Stirling trk over the summit is already closed so head back around the circut rd to Howqua gap. If you have time you could also check out Bindaree falls or cut accross to Mt Buller.
Rivers are still fairly shallow at present. Check the forcast before you go as we've had several falls of snow already this season. Have fun. Cheers Craig..............
