A few minutes’  walk from the car park will have you at Myttons Hut, overlooking the Cobb Reservoir.

The hut makes a nice alternative to the more crowded Trilobite Hut a little further down the road.

Day excursions from this hut include walking along Cobb Ridge for a couple of hours to the reservoir lookout, or a visit to Lake Peel, en route to Balloon Hut (3hr), or further on to Salisbury Lodge (4.5hr) on the legendary Mt Arthur Tablelands.
