Mother Cummings head

Postby Hikrazy » Wed 13 Oct, 2021 8:35 am

Hi everyone,
I was after any info as far as track conditions of a loop I am planning from albert ross camp ground, meander falls road-quarry road-bastion cascades-dell track-mother Cummings track- the possibility of hiking the peak to decend via Cummings cliff track on east side.
I just walked a loop involving the never never and paddy harnett track so if the above is possible, I will do it.
Thanks
Hikrazy

I did Bastion Cascades loop from Quarry Rd a few weeks ago. All those tracks were quite open and easy to follow, but as per most of the tracks in the area, they can be relatively rocky and slippery in places- especially after rain.

It's a few years since I have done the other tracks mentioned.

I know someone who did Cummings Head from the east a few months ago. As long as you find the right spot to go down, it's fine.

Completed the above loop.
10 hours at a leisurely pace.
Amazing waterways and views.
On top of Mother Cummings, followed the cans and easily found the eastern decent.
Thanks for the advice
