  1. Challenging hike with a full pack, a large amount of creek crossing requires good foot wear. Hidden camp is lovely, we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves for the night, very peaceful. We hiked in from the carpark via Battery Ridge, making the walk out from Hidden Camp to the carpark, the next day an easy 3-4hr walk.
