Pineapple Flat to Craigs Hut and across Mt Stirling
About the Track
Track Description
The track is about 30kms from Mansfield and starts and finishes at the turn-off to Mt Stirling. There are several river crossings and towards the end it gets steeper, but there are many campsites along the way and it is a good area to unwind. I holiday up here sometimes as there are many tracks in the area to enjoy. Also Craig\'s hut from The Man from Snowy River fame is and will continue to be a classic site. Last time I went with some friends and have managed to get some GPS coordinates from the trip which may prove helpful. Gps-s 37 6\' 38" e 146 23\' 48", Gps-s 37 6\' 47" e 146 27\' 48", Gps- s 37 4\' 6" e 146 29\' 50", Gps-s 37 6\' 35" e 146 32\' 5", Gps-s 37 8\' 39" e 146 29\' 24".
