Beautiful alpine environment complete with birdsong and native bush. Great views once you get near the hut. Upon reaching the Mt Arthur Hut, continue past it for 5-10 minutes following the trail to the plateau above before turning around. These are the best views of the Tasman Bay and Kahurangi National Park.
