Day Two is a 16 km hike from Glade House to Pompolona Lodge. Mainly flat, except for the last couple of kms, and pretty good track to walk on.
The generator came on at 6.45 am and departure was 8.30 am as Day 2 isn’t as long a day as the next two.
You leave Glade House by crossing over the Clinton River. There’s something like 280 water crossings in total on the track!
A view from the bridge back to Glade House.
A small detour gets you to the tree with a hole in it!
Another five minute side track takes you to the Wetlands.
At the end of the Wetland board walk.
Then back into the beech forest.
The track is really well maintained at this stage. Later days, the surface was much tougher.
A nice reflection at Prairie Lake.
The track then breaks into the open near the end.
And just before Pompolona Lodge you have to climb across two massive rockfalls.

The common area where you relax, nice and warm and dry. Bar opens at 5 pm, so prior to that just quiet reading and relaxation time.Tags: DPF, Great Walks, Milford Track
