This moderate walk sets out from the Mt Selwyn Resort carpark, along the access trail behind the resort, winding through snowgum forest to Mt Selwyn Radio Tower. Further along, the trees open up into vast sub-alpine grasslands with views of Tabletop Mountain and Mt Jagungal.
The open plains are awash with wildflowers in summer, including golden-stemmed billy buttons and orange everlasting daisies. Birds are active in autumn and spring – keep an eye out for wedge-tailed eagles, flame robins and brown falcons. This track is also a great option for horse riding and mountain biking adventures.
Turn right at the junction with Tabletop trail and follow for 1.3 kilometres to reach Four Mile Hut access trail, where you can spot faint remnants of the area’s gold mining days. Four Mile Hut is 750 metres along the lightly marked access trail, by foot only. Built in 1937, by the last active gold miner in this area, the striking timber and tin strip hut is a scenic backdrop for a picnic to refuel before retracing your steps to the carpark.
