Overview

This is one of four DOC Great Walk huts on the Routeburn Track. There are also campsites at Routeburn Flats and Lake Mackenzie. This hut offers lovely views across the Route Burn valley floor, and makes a great day walk or easy first night stay on the Routeburn Track.

  • Gas is not provided - you will need to bring your own cooking stove.
