Departing from Mirimbah, you will head up the Delatite River, crossing the river 15 times, providing some cooling relief on a hot summer’s day. You will travel amongst the towering Mountain Ash and luscious tree ferns making your way up the river spur through the Alpine Ash to the gnarled Snow Gums and alpine meadows on the summit of Mt Stirling before making your way to base camp at Razorback.
The next day you will ride to Mt Stirling, stopping to take in the breathtaking views and visit Craig’s Hut. After a relaxing lunch stop, you are Razorback bound where the drinks are iced and the campfires ready. On the last day you ride home to Merrijig via Mt Number 3 and Burnt Hut Spur with a relaxing lunch stop along the way.
You just need to bring a sleeping bag and pillow or a swag, wet weather gear, your own personal things as well as any soft drink or alcohol you might like to enjoy around the campfire in the evenings.
