    historic hut (sites) trip

    Here is a first/rough version of this trip.

    Friday: (22.11.2013) leaving at 6PM from Hunter Car Park to Waiohine Rd end, usual stop at supermarket, walk in to Cone hut and enjoy some candles. We could read some horror stories?!

    Saturday: (22.11.2013) a mixture of swimming river crossing, searching for Allaway-Dickson Hut remnants (VUWTC hut from the 50s and 60s) roughly where the Block XVI track comes down. Walking over to the Totara Flats, e.g via Coal Creek Track or from Rees directly northwards, afternoon tea in Totara Flats and Sayers Hut, making a fire and enjoying the hut!

    Sunday: (22.11.2013) Back via Waiohine and Ridge (fairly walkable) to the car.
    That's a figure 8 tramp :-)
    Fitness grade: medium (maybe the easy end of it), roughly 600 m uphill each day (incl Friday), and a bit off track.
    Trip costs: 20 NZD for transport. Expenses for dinner on Sunday will be shared. Please bring your hut tickets/passes.
