Sunset Peak, Galiuro Mountains
High Creek Road in the Galiuro Mountains was recently reopened after being blocked by a local rancher for 11 years. The restored road provides access to a section of the Galiuros that was unreachable without a multi-day backpack. With our friend Jim F., we explored the rough gravel road, hoping it might be open as far as the old trailhead to Sunset Peak. We succeeded beyond our wildest expectations, and were surprised to find that the old trail has been beautifully restored, providing well-shaded access not only to Sunset Peak, but to the Galiuro Crest Trail and beyond.
