    DOC

Huge climbs, huge descents, all 4WD some quite overgrown with tall grass but well signposted by DOC. Take comfortable walking shoes as there is plenty of pushing up hills! Some great views into Skippers from the top of Mt Dewer and good views up moonlight towards Moke Lake when descending down to Devils Creek. This is sheep country so remember to keep your mouth closed on the downhills!

Access Info

Go up to Skippers saddle from Queenstown and turn left a few meters after the Skippers saddle gate.
