Devils Hut | Wakamarina Track, Mt Richmond Forest Park
The name Devils Hut must have some story about its origin but I’m not aware of it.
This hut was built to replace an old gold miners slab hut out the back.
Devils Hut is a typical NZFS SF70 style six bunker that has been altered over the years: the open fire has been replaced with a fire box, the internal cupboard removed, benches replaced, the squeaky steel bunks modified, etc. It’s an easy tramp up from Butchers Flat carpark through an area with an extensive gold mining history.
