Mannys Marsh

 

Location    Mt.Field Alpine Region

Summary

Bushwalk through wet forest to a open plain surrounded by drier forest on northern side of Mount Field

The road up (Holmes Road) has several turns and could be a bit tricky to get right if new to the area. The last few hundred metres is somewhat boggy, but there are a few spots with room to park prior to this.

Initially the route follows logging tracks through recovering wet forest before dropping just a small dip to cross Ironstone Creek then ascends a marked pad with some bushes cut. Once on the dry upper ground the route turns right to follow slopes along the line of one of the outlet creeks; Ironstone again.
