Mt Bogong via The Staircase Spur Walking Track (Bogong Remote and Natural Area, Alpine National Park)

The Staircase spur is aptly named, climbing 16km to the summit of Mount Bogong. Once you reach the exposed, treeless (true alpine) plateau the views are 360 and spectacular, but beware at 1,926m you are in a place where you need to come prepared. The trail is steep and arduous, requiring a high level of fitness. Poor weather conditions that include snow, high winds and fog can occurr any time of year.
