The plateau is accessed via the “Jeep Track” either over Mt St Gwinear or bypassing to the north , and from there the course consists of checkpoints on knolls and rises and along open flats. The course extends to the north of the Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort area. Do as many or as few checkpoints for your ability.
