This is a traditional bushwalk with no graded tracks or
directional signs. It is a walk the Club has not done in a few
years. It is in the Christmas Creek Valley and we leave the
bitumen road at Stinson Park and turn right on a gravel road
and follow it a short distance to a locked gate and the start of
the track. 
From the gate we continue along the gravel road uphill through
private property and we should find a hut and a derelict ute.
Veer left and follow a 4WD track uphill along the crest of a
ridge. When the road ends, we follow the spine of the ridge. At
the crest turn right onto the main ridge. We go up two rocky
bluffs to the crest of the ridge and continue on to the top of a
grassy knoll.
This trail is great for hiking and it's unlikely we will encounter
many other people on this walk. There is an elevation gain of
589m. Our timing of this trip is at the best time and there are
great views of the Christmas Creek Valley and looking west to
the peaks of Lindsay, Barney and Maroon. Come and enjoy a
classic bushwalk.
