3rd Highest Peak In Victoria

9:43:27 PM
Ok what is it?
I know the top two are Bogong and Feathertop respectively, but what is the 3rd? I suspect it may be Mt Loch. Anyone know for sure?

It's actually Mt Nelse North (1884m)

just wondering, if you've been up there, what is the Grey Hills track like? Planning on hiking up there after sometime soon (will be coming from Mt Bogong via Quartz Ridge).. is it as steeper than the 4WD track that leads up to Nelse from there?

I haven't done the Grey Hills track. I was going to do it one winter but my partner got ill on Bogong so we aborted.
Mike Collie did a trip there in the early eighties and published in Rock. Maybe ask Chris Baxter at Rock. From my recollection, the Grey Hills would be a more rugged and more memorable journey than the standard Bogong - High Plains trip.

Did the walk 3 years ago. Grey Hills is very similar and only slightly steeper than the track that leads from Falls Creek to Mt Nelse. Although I understand this whole area is closed due to the bushfire damage, it's a wide 4WD track with sustained walking all the way up to the top. Much better than coming up up via Duane Spur!
I just wonder what the river will be doing at this time of the year when you cross it? Worst case you may just have to strip for it! but it was fine when I did it during the easter period.

I was planning on doing it this weekend, but I'm now glad that I didn't have the time.

Wide 4WD track, are you sure you are not confusing this with the Big River fire track which runs semi-parallel to the Grey Hills track?

Yes, Duane spur is a @#$$ of a track, I did that when I was very unfit, I thought I was gunna die!
