Hey fellow brunch fiends!

Planning a pretty cruisey trip up to Mount Stirling before they start charging for resort entry. The idea is to hike up from Telephone Box Junction to a hut near the summit of Stirling (either Bluff Spur of GGS, depending which is free), camp the night (in tents), then have Melbourne style brunch the next morning (points for folk who bring avocados) before heading back down. Looking to cover about 8km on the Saturday, and maybe 5km on the Sunday. Plenty of scope to add in some side trips to other huts and lookouts, time, weather and enthusiasm levels permitting. 

At the moment this trip is rated beginner, however, if snow is forecast or there is snow reported on the mountain, this trip will be updated to intermediate.  You MUST be prepared to hike in the cold, and potentially through the snow. This means that hike boots, beanies, multiple warm jumpers, spare wool socks, thermals and raincoats are essential. Shoot me a message if you're unsure!

See ya all the Tuesday before for the trip meeting. In the meantime feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions! :)
