This nice walk starts from Charlotte Pass and follows the old Kosciuszko Road through the mountains to Seamans Hut crossing the famous Snowy River along the way. Seamans Hut is a great place to enjoy lunch and is openly available for day use (and for emergency use at night). Most of this walk gives excellent grandstand views across the valley and down the Snowy River. The walk follows a well defined management trail (that was once a public road) with signposts along the way.
