Mt Arthur Hut | Kahurangi National Park
The Mt Arthur Hut is destined to be replaced at some stage soon, probably another 200 m up the track above the treeline. Proximity to the Flora Saddle car park, and being en route to the marvellous vista from the top of Mt Arthur provides a steady flow of visitors, particularly in warmer months. Capacity is often exceeded. It may well turn into a hut requiring bookings in the future.
A good introduction to a standard DOC hut, complete with a wood burner to give cosy nighttime conditions. Just don’t overdo it, those top bunks can be excessively sweaty.
