Mt Bowen can be traversed with packs to the Whitcombe Valley. From Mt Bowen, the rocky
spur out past Sentinel Peak offers good travel down to J34 460909 / BV18 360 293, where there
may still be an old marker post. Easy tussock travel then leads left to Noisy Stream and Basin.
From the 1170-metre contour, leave Noisy Stream and sidle on the true left across benches and
basins to J34 474922 / BV18 374 306. Descend the spur over a lower knoll directly down to join
the marked route leading to the Whitcombe Valley. The lightly-marked route is followable with
care, but deteriorates on forested flats near the river.
