  • Mt Baw Baw to Mushroom Rocks Lisa Ingram

    Great! Just been looking for the next weekend walk, and here it is. Thanks!

  • Here’s my 2cents:
    1) First time hiker.
    2) Fitness almost non existence.
    3) 65kg body weight carrying about 16kg.
    4) Carried 4litre of water, but ran out of water the last 5km back.
    5) Solo hike. 5.5hours Mt Baw Baw – Mushroom Rocks; 6 hours return back on the same exact route (did not detour to Baw Baw Summit as per website suggestion because leg was jelly).
    6) It was hell. had to stop every few metres up a climb after prolonged walking. That last stretch entering into Mushroom Rocks was torturous, on the way in was steep downhill, foot was hurting mad, on the way back was uphill leg was burning.
    8) Did not die.

    HI, can I just clarify: is this a 30k round trip, or 30 each way? Thanks

  • Great hike- Thanks Darren! Perfect for beginners who are breaking into the hiking world. Just a few things, the first ~2km’s on the The Village Trail is through some thick shubbery (almost bush bashing) and a bog! Don’t stop becuase you will be bitten by flies. About ~13km’s on the way to Mushroom Rock there is a flowing water source under a wooden bridge (for anyone low on water).
