Starting from the car park on Lake Dobson Road, Mount Field National Park, this walk takes you to Lake Belton and Lake Belcher. Departing from Wombat Moor, this walk leads to two glacial lakes in one of the most beautiful areas of Mount Field, offering great views of the surrounding mountain ranges along the way. The track follows a boardwalk planking across open moorland and sub-alpine forest, passing near Mount Mawson before descending into the Humboldt Valley. At Lake Belcher, there's a timber hut where you can take shelter and spend the night. The track to Lake Belton isn't very well-defined, but it has some tape markers and isn't too hard to follow. You may also venture off track through the scrub to reach VC Falls, a series of cascades located on the outlet creek of Lake Belton. This is a challenging walk, suited to fit and experienced walkers, and is best attempted in summer. The track can be very wet and muddy, especially towards the end, so appropriate footwear is essential. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
