Mt Selwyn Rd - Walsh's Track - Vic High Country 17/8/19

Had the chance to head up to the heli-pad near the top of Mt Selwyn and check out the snow and couldn't pass it up.

We hit one large tree blocking the track but were able to clear it in about half an hour, less time than we thought, especially since we passed a couple of vehicles coming back down who had turned around suggesting it'd take a couple of hours at least to clear it.

Some great views from the top then came down Walsh's track on the other side which is fairly overgrown but an easy drive most of the way. Conditions will change markedly in the next week with the weather predicted.

Track up to the helipad, was less slippery and easier than we thought.

heading down, more evidence of fallen tree's, fortunately someone else had already cleared these.

At this point I was starting to wonder if we were on Walsh's track or not, apparently we were.....

Yet another fallen tree over the road, easy enough to drive around this one though...

Did Walshes track to Cobbler from Dargo a couple of years ago, nice easy going drive, they seem to look after there tracks around that area...

I'd agree Swaggie, Walsh's track was an easy drive. Lake Cobbler track was a lot more cut up than the last time I'd been up it (few yrs ago) but that's probably a function of the time of year as well. Have to get back and check it out in summer next year. Still travelling East to West was not difficult even now.
