SNOW HIKES AT BUFFALO

There are a range of snow hike trails available at Mount Buffalo during the snow season

Please note that the Horn Road, Beginners Loop and Bogong loop at Cresta are only for snow shoes and cross country skiing and that walking on these trails puts footprints in the snow that ruin the trails and can seriously injure skiers when conditions are icy. Hiking on the reservoir road should also be avoided as this is a cross country ski and snow shoe trail.

Hike with a friend, let someone know where you are going, carry a map and compass, a Telstra mobile phone (note that many areas do not have reception) and consider carrying a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB). Warm outdoor clothes and wet weather gear should be worn / carried.

The trails below the Plateau top are normally snow free and the gorge precinct and the hikes on the gorge rim are often clear of snow as well. The best snow hiking starts from the Monolith track through to Cresta Valley depending on snow levels

Some recommended snow hikes and a map of hikes at Cresta Valley are shown below
