Lake Skinner/Nevada Peak Road Access

Postby Mowser » Tue 28 Jan, 2020 10:46 am

Has anyone been into Snowy Range since last year's fires? If so how is the road access, particularly in to the Nevada Peak track? From looking at PWS website, road closures etc, it appears it's all open again now but would like to know the state of the road if anyone has been in recently? Cheers.

Yep, it's all good to go.

Access is still via the Lake Skinner Road as the bridge over the Russell River is still down.
That looks like a pad.

I was there last month. Fine for 2wd. There's maybe 500m ish of road walking to the start of the Nevada track. You have to park just before this:

There are nice arrows and signs for the Nevada track.
