If you want to walk this route then now is the time. The track has been cut and tagged/ marked from Guy's hut to about 7 kms along from Guy's hut before the steep final descent to the Dry river track and its junction with the Bicentennial National trail( The Dry River horse track ). Some clearing has been completed along the river flats.
The overgrown final section has been tagged with pink ribbon. There is talk of possibly combining Parks Vic. , BTAC and the Horsey people to get the walking track works completed and cutting and clearing the horse track . If this were to occur then a sort of a loop could be walked in the Dry river area between the Howitt Plains and Dry river/ Wonnangatta Valley.

I would love to. I've got a short list I want to do, Prom. Northern circuit, Helicopter Spur/Howitt and Viking/Speculation.
Unfortunately, broken foot has meant Labor day long weekend is a wash.
Maybe I can do something Easter holidays if foot recovers and I get a bit of fitness in the legs.
Which is to say, tracks like this are way back on the queue. And if you're right about another lockdown, I think bushwalking will be a bust this year, like last year. :(

Still...I can follow your adventures and exploits. :)

The Dry river hike is a category 4 wilderness trek.
You need to be confident at remote navigation and self reliant in every department.
Top level fitness is not optional either.
It is very remote and wild. You will NOT see anyone else out there unless you bump into a deer hunter near Dry river.

OK, you've convinced me. Not going to do this walk as I can't see myself being up to it. :)
