Description

Easy trail to follow through the bush and up into the tussock and open tops. Well marked, rooty and steep trail. Use of hands will be required! Glorious views from the hut.

Hint: take the right hand path for both the side trips and follow the cairns to begin with and keep an eye on your map so as not to go off course, avoid the path to the left of the hut!
