Ingeegoodbee Track access

Planning a post-covid walk heading north along the Ingeegoodbee Track: We are planning to start near the Vic border with a drop-off somewhere along Barry Way. The obvious starting point is straight up Nine Mile FT; however, the topo maps also indicate an unnamed track starting about 6km further down Barry Way. What I am wondering is whether this track makes its way all the way across the border to the Ingeegoodbee Track? One topo map seems to indicate so. Others not. On Google Earth the track becomes difficult to discern as it approaches the border. Thanks in advance for advice.

Yes there are a couple of tracks to the south of Nine Mile FT - mostly overgrown/eroded and can be lost in places. Further south across the border, the Ingeegoodbee Track is open to 4wds and can take you almost to the border. It's for genuine 4wds though, not soft-roader friendly at all.

The Nine Mile FT is the most direct and gets the climb over and done with efficiently.

Follow-up on this: last week walked the old track from 625015E 5923318N in SSW direction to peak 859. There is a good little turnout on the BW for parking, but no evidence at all of a trailhead from the road itself. A few steps over a graded embankment and you will soon find the old track. No evidence of any use in recent years. Easy to follow about 2/3 of the way to the peak, then just hoof pads through the scrub up the spur. Beaut views from the peak, esp if you wander down the east side a bit. Wilderness. Rather steep going up - but not as steep as the NMT which I went up and down the next day! Didn't venture further south from the peak (towards the border) but I reckon it would be slow going. Also no water on the ridge and spurs, of course.
