Description

From Tom Grogin to Nariel Valley. Trip Story
This is a fairly hard track for first timers. Starting from The Tom Grogan Campsite just off the Alpine Way in Kosciuszko National Park to Mt Pinnibar. Follow the track into Tom Grogan campsite until you reach the Murray River. BE CAREFULif you have not crossed here before and check the depth of the river asit can be deep after rain or melting snow and near impossible to cross.After the river crossing you will see a sign pointing you in the rightdirection (Turn Right). Continue on the track and follow the signposts for Mt Pinnibar. Not long into the trip you will encounter a VERY STEEP climb. Dont even attempt this in the wet if you are not experienced in 4X4 offroad driving.

Continue to climb (seems endless) until you reach the summit of Mt Pinnibar. You will be rewarded by magnificent 360° Views.

Leaving Mt Pinnibar, continue down Pinnibar Track. You will now be heading to Nariel Valley. Stay on Mt Pinnibar Tk until you reach Dead Finish Road and turn Left. There are significant deep ruts on the way down and you will need good ground clearence or stay high out of the ruts (a real test in the wet) Continue from there till you reach Dunstans Logging Road and turn Right. Stay on Dunstans Road till you reach the bitumen road intersection of Corryong Road (Turn right to Corryong).


Trip Tips
1. Recovery gear a must.
2. Take camera.
3. Don't attempt in wet unless your thinking of suicide.
4. Preferably travel with other vehicles spaced appropriately.
5. A change of underwear if you attempt in the wet.
