Map Jaithmathang to Fainter FT

Postby LLSC » Mon 17 Jun, 2024 12:17 pm

I am looking for assistance from anyone who may have a map of the route from Mt Jaithmatang north to Fainter Firetrail. BTAC plan to clear a route through here after winter. SV and some other maps have an indicative line of roughly where it goes. Parts of it have a definite footpad but in other parts, regrowth has completely obscured the route. I would appreciate if anyone can point me in the direction of anything semi-official, to assist us in taking the best line.
Thankyou.

Will this be an official Parks Victoria-sanctioned working bee?

If so then surely PV would have a GPX file or similar???

I have walked that route last decade but it is now very overgrown as is the route from Tawonga Huts up to the summit of Mt. Jaithmatang.
I hope to be available to take part in the working bee.

Eyeball the topography and follow your nose. :)

I don't remember any real track through there - but really quite open going - like stry says.

Ditto. It is (in my increasingly out-of-date) experience, a straightforward line-of-sight walk, no vegetational challenge.

I walked from Little Plain to Jaitmathang last summer. No track was found, and it's a bit scrubby in places. I've done this walk a few times and found no track. The 4WD/management track fromBogong Jack to Tawonga Huts is no longer viable for vehicles in many places. South of Little Plain it's wet and muddy. Approval from PV is needed before doing track maintenance. I'm not sure that PV will approve track cutting.
