Leave early Saturday morning, drive up to the Cobb (2.5 hr drive).  Follow the Fenella Track to Cobb Hut, then branch left to Lake Cobb, and continue on to Round Lake (approx 5.5 hour walk).  Camp in this impressive alpine basin at 1300m.  (If the weather is unfavourable, an alternative is to stay at Fenella Hut (1 serviced hut ticket)). If the weather is good, explore the area around Round Lake early on Sunday morning.  This will likely include a walk up to the ridge behind the lake to look at the views beyond.  Walk back to the cars on Sunday.  With a morning side trip, the walk back to the cars and the drive home, it is likely we will be back in Nelson after 7pm on Sunday. 

You will need to bring a tent and all cooking equipment. 

On Sunday morning you have the option of waiting at the campsite if you prefer not to do the walk up to the ridge.
