Starting from the Mount Field East lower car park on Lake Dobson Road, Mount Field National Park, this walk takes you past Mount Field East. The track initially climbs through tall snow gums, passing a side track to Beatties Tarn before reaching the beautiful Lake Nicholls, where a timber hut provides shelter from the weather. From there, the track climbs up the escarpment past Lake Raynor towards the base of Mount Field East. A scree slope leads to the summit, which offers panoramic views of Rodway Range, Mount Field West, Bushy Park and the Derwent Valley. The track continues along a boardwalk across Windy Moor, then descends towards Lake Fenton, passing a side track to Seagers Lookout near the end of the walk. Navigation is fairly easy on a clear day, but difficult in snowy conditions when visibility is poor. This is an exposed alpine walk, so be prepared for sudden changes in the weather and extremely cold temperatures. 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.
