Rocks Hut (Flashback)

#10 – 11th November 2012

This hut sits up on top of the Bryant Range between the Pelorus River and Nelson City, in the Mt Richmond Forest Park. Its a 16 bunk hut with a good fire and open plan set up.  The fire here does good toasted marshmellows.

It can be reached via the Rocks Track just prior to the Mount Richmond Alpine Track on the Te Araroa trail. There is a track down to Nelson from here which takes you over the Coppermine Saddle and along the Dun Mountain Trail. This was the old ‘Dun Mountain Railway’ which served chromite and copper mines in the area up until 1866.
