Route Description

The Scott’s Track is less steep and is sign posted on the main road opposite the Devils Punchbowl waterfall. The track goes in zigzags through the bush line and here, as well as on the Avalanche Peak track, the route is marked with big sticks towards the summit, which are
clearly seen when leaving the bushes.
An ideal roundtrip is of course to climb via the Avalanche Peak track and return via the Scott’s Track. The crossroad is around 15 min below the summit at around 1,680 m.)

Essential Gear

Good hiking boots.
