Horseshoe Flat Hut | Moeraki River, South Westland
An easy-ish three hour walk up from the Haast Paringa Track. But not much visited due to the cul-de-sac nature of the valley.
Another NZFS SF 70 hut, in great condition, although it has its original open fireplace replaced with a wood burner, a clearlight panel installed in the roof, and a water tank also installed for some reason. Potentially sunny in summer, but would be cold in winter.
