A challenging but rewarding destination only for fit, experienced and well-prepared bushwalkers. It can be accessed via the Corker Trail (Lagoon Pinch to Careys Peak), a 20 km, 10 hr return walk; or the Link Trail (Gloucester Tops to Careys Peak), a 34 km, 10–12 hr return walk. Good topographic maps are necessary for both tracks, and you need to bring drinking water with you. When you reach the junction of the 2 trails, walk east for 1 km then turn left – the campground is a short walk from here.
