Description

Cass - Lagoon Saddle in Craigieburn Forest Park is a two-day round trip suitable for fit, moderately experienced and equipped parties. This trip is in the dry mountains east of the Main Divide. It crosses riverbeds and rivers, follows forest tracks and crosses two saddles. For a challenging weekend tramp, there is a comfortable 20 bunk hut midway, or take 34 days by staying in some of the other basic huts on the route. The track is not marked all the way, so ensure you take a topo map with you. Most trampers prefer to begin the track from the Cass end, as this avoids the steepest ascents. Because of the high avalanche danger on Cass Saddle and the frequency of winter snowfalls, this route is best attempted from early to late summer. Not all rivers and streams are bridged, so they may be impassable after heavy rainfall. **NOTE** There have been reports of cars being broken into and disabled at track ends. Don't leave valuables in your vehicle. Consider using more public parking sites ask at the Arthur's Pass Visitor Centre for alternative options. Report any suspicious activity to police on +64 3 363 7400. No dogs.

Looks more like a parking than a free camp... Didn't stay there for the night.

Do not park your car overnight there (lots of vandalised cars here recently) but at Cass settlement, only 1 km further. Track is really nice !
