Great overnight hike

This is a great overnight hike for newbies, not to say an awesome view in the morning! The hut is very clean and tidy with a good amount of space for eating and cooking. Booking is required during the peak season. Online booking is available via the DOC website where you’ll find more info on the hut facilities. It was fully booked when we stayed but didn’t feel crowded. Remember to bring your own cooking equipment including gas for cooking. The track that continues on to the next hut is worth checking out even it is just to catch a view of the saddle ridge behind the hut. Note the warning about the more technical track especially if it’s windy and/or wet. Also good to note the last kilometre of the drive to the start of the hike is on gravel road, with pot holes in many parts, so make sure your vehicle is not too low. …

Views of Hawkesbay and over the saddle Ruapehu and Ngaruahoe

A steep walk which zig zags under the canopy of trees after which you emerge to the hut with panoramic views.Fresh tank water at the hut with bunks and toilets.Behind the hut is the saddle walk which takes about 30 mins one way.The wind can be very chilly and rough so bring wind breaker and beanie.At the end on clear day is views of Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe and memorial to a plane crash where the fate of pilot remains a mystery. There are toilets at the car park but remember to bring toilet paper.
