The 4WD access route heads down Speculation Road, which is reached via a turn-off from Circuit Rd about 6 km south-east of the Craig's Hut turn-off. There are horse yards here for use by intrepid explorers. The hut itself is in excellent condition, having been recently rebuilt.
Please note that access by vehicle is not possible from mid-June to November due to seasonal track closures in the High Country. Seasonal closures generally operate from the King's Birthday long weekend in June through to the beginning of November but may be extended due to seasonal conditions. Most tracks reopen on the Friday prior to Melbourne Cup Day long weekend. Contact the Mansfield Visitor Information Centre for more details.
