Keebles Loop

1 Hr

2.6 km Circuit

27 m

Hard track
Starting from the northern end of Geehi Flats Camping area, this walk first visits the Geehi Hut before crossing Swampy Plains Creek and walking along a 4WD trail, part of the Bicentennial National Trail to Keebles Hut. Here the walk loops back via another 4WD trail following the creek most of the way back to the start. The alternate entry described in these notes follows another 4WD trail in and uses a bridge to cross the creek, helpful if you want to keep your feet dry or when the creek’s flow is too great to cross safely.
