Cascade Hut trail

Natural Attractions

Cascade Hut trail is one to try in every season. In summer, bring your mountain bike or hiking boots: the remote path twists through snowgum woodland and the untouched beauty of Pilot Wilderness Area. In winter the trail turns white with snow, offering terrific opportunities for cross-country skiing and snow-shoe touring. Spring is marked by the bloom of beautiful wildflowers, heralding the return of warmer months.

This versatile trail, which is part of the Australian Alps walking track, is great for beginners and experts alike. From Dead Horse Gap to Cascades Hut, it’s a 10 kilometre ride or walk one-way, or 20 kilometre return. If you’re keen for a challenge, continue overnight, past Tin Mine huts to Nine Mile trail and on to Barry Way – where you’ll need to be collected.

A high point on the trail, Bob’s Ridge, offers a scenic lookout across the Murray River valley into Victoria, so be sure to bring some binoculars.
