Hurunui Hut | Lake Sumner Forest Park

It might have a 20 minute stroll up to Hurunui Hut from the river in either direction but that gives a benefit: there’s a view over to the range that acts as a backdrop to Lake Sumner, nice when the sun is setting.

Hurunui Hut is the usual everything-in-one-big-room style of DOC hut that tends to promote social interaction, if there are others about, and ain’t that what tramping in NZ is all about.
