Hidden Falls Hut | Hollyford Track, Fiordland National Park
Huts close to roadends tend to attract people who just want to duck into the bush for a night or two. They can get over used, err, beaten up. People can bring in all types of things usual in civilisation but not so common to the more committed trampers: cans, plastic, etc. Rubbish dumped rather than taken out.
Hidden Falls Hut may escape this to some degree, the Lower Hollyford Road requires some effort even in a vehicle, but having a hut warden in the summer months must help in the cleanliness factor.
Hidden Falls Hut is a newish hut with great views to the impressive Darran mountains, yeah, it’s worth a night, even if you don’t fully walk the Hollyford. Just take your rubbish when you leave.
