The track turns westward opposite the High Lead Car Park and runs parallel to the main road. Two log bridges span the Latrobe River before the track crosses the main road and passes the site of the Nayook West township.

Crossing the Latrobe again the track climbs up and crosses the main road at the site known as The Bump, the divide between the Latrobe and Yarra catchments. The Bump is also known for “The Bump Tunnel”, an historic tramway tunnel constructed in 1925.

Over The Bump, the track winds its way down the Little Yarra catchment, crossing the Little Yarra three times over log bridges, before joining Mackleys Road. The track is very rough with many obstacles.

Experienced bushwalkers and/ or high fitness level required.
