A standard 6-bunk forestry hut in the northern Haurangi Ranges. Open fire, river water + 20l roof tank (soya oil tin). Plenty of firewood around, but judging from the hut book, an empty wood store is the norm. The hut sits in a large grassy clearing, separated from the river by a band of exotic scrub. Behind the hut the valleyside is podocarp bush for the first 100m, above which beech takes over. Upriver and opposite, beech also dominates. The only hut north of Sutherland Road - and a long way from formal tramping tracks, this hut gets very little tramping traffic. Access is 'walking only' according to DOC, with landholder's permission - though an ATV track runs all the way to the hut, and gets some use from hunters. 8km on farm/forestry tracks, then 3km winding up river on a quad track.
