A bookable hut in the eastern Ruahines. The hut lies at the end of Rangitane Rd, accessed from Mangaweka. However the last section of the road to the park boundary crosses private land and the farmer stopped allowing access in 2012. Whilst this situation persists, the base can only be accessed on foot via either the Hikurangi Range or Mokai Patea Range. The hut requires booking from DOC, and a key is needed for access. A fee is charged (not backcountry pass). This is effectively a house with gas cooking, a woodburner with wet-back for hot water, and beds in multiple rooms.
