This short walk starts at Charlotte Pass and follows a stone path, then boardwalk, discovering snow gums and two great lookouts. The first lookout provides great views west, up the Snowy River and Club Lake Creek to the Main Range and Australia’s highest peaks. The next lookout is high on a rocky outcrop on Guthrie Range and provides a fantastic 360 degree view of the surrounding area.
