Description

This standard six-bunk hut in the Kaimanawa Forest Park is an ideal base for hunters, or for hikers looking to enjoy the scenic Hinemaiaia track. Fees apply. Bookings not required - first come, first served. Facilities include heating, mattresses, non-flush toilets and water (not treated - boil before use). Cascade hut sits in a clearing surrounded by tall beech forest, where for kk, tomtit and robin can often be seen or heard. It is a rustic, single room hut with a wood burner, table and sink with internal water supply. There are also plenty of opportunities to camp nearby. The hut can be reached in 6-8 hours, hiking from Clements Mill Road end via the scenic Hinemaiaia Track. Not far from the hut, the Tauranga-Taupo river narrows through a spectacular ignimbrite gorge - home to the native whio (blue duck), and a great swimming spot in summer. Before you go, buy 1 Standard Hut Ticket (blue for adults, yellow for youth) for each night's stay. Put this in the honesty box at the hut. Or buy a Backcountry Hut Pass that gives unlimited use at most Standard and Serviced huts for a 6 or 12-month period.
