Estimated Times to Run







Starting at the road, follow the orange marker poles through the bottom paddocks. Head up the first wee hill via the farm track and then drop down to Low Burn via the poled route. Cross the creek and then take a right hand turn. Follow this farm track for the next 4ish kilometers. There is the occasional orange marker to keep you on route. The farm track then switches to some sweet single track as you sidle along the hillside. You will be heading along underneath and then around Castle Rock (not on topo, but looks like a castle). You are then following the poles/fence line up to the tops where you will meet the main Pisa Range 4WD track. Follow this and the markers heading left down to the Deep Creek Hut.

No dedicated parking spots. Park on road shoulder. Fairly secluded rural road.

Generally good.

Waterproof leggings, Seam-sealed waterproof jacket, Beanie/thermal headwear, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Survival bag, Cellphone, Map.

Some creeks which are fine to drink out of up on the hillside.

Very exposed, so rug up warm. Be prepared to turn back as can be particularly nasty up on top and can change quickly.
