Andersons Track to Mays View

Possibly the only way to see the Sutherland falls until DOC open a new track. This is a very old track that is overgrown and eroded. I had a lot of fun finding it, wading through swamp swinging from root to root. Having found the old track this GPX file is the return trip and should not be too hard to follow but you will get your feet wet crossing the river and on the lower part of the track. Mostly it goes up a gully and there are old remnants of track even occasional markers. I did not have time but you should be able to continue on past May's view for and even closer look at the falls and thus bypass the present dangerous area where the traditional track is closed. I suspect that DOCs will probably reopen a new " Anderson's" track when they get the funds to build it as it is pretty steep and eroded. Have fun
