Collins Bonnet

The track from Myrtle Forest follows the creek up the fairly steep track, crossing it and climbing steadily through somewhat overgrowing vegetation  to the East West trail.  The last 300 or so metres is on a more recently rerouted section.  The fire trail is followed  for about 500 metres before the final ascent through the bush to the summit.  Part of this last section is over a small boggy area and then a couple of boulder fields.  There is an old track that runs parallel to the fire trail and it is still open but going up the start is not that obvious, however it is more easily picked up on the return.
