Description

This is a basic two-bunk hut located in Tararua Forest Park in the Wairarapa region. There are no fees. Bookings not required - first come, first served. Facilities include mattresses, non-flushing toilets and water from a stream. Toka Biv is located on the Ngamoko Range on an east facing spur overlooking the upper Pohangina Valley, north of Toka Trig. The biv sits on the west side of a small basin with numerous tarns sheltered from the worst of the westerly winds. The weather of the Ngamoko Range - reputedly some of the most hostile in the Ruahine ranges - makes Toka Biv a potential life saving shelter. Altitude:1320 meters. The most common access routes are either up the Knights or Shorts Track to the Ngamoko Range from Limestone Road End. The turn-off to Toka Biv is marked by three waratah fence posts on the high point of the Ngamoko Ridge, directly above the biv. Head due east and follow the clear foot trail steeply off the ridge in the direction of the Pohangina River below. The route has the occasional small cairn but no other markers; generally the foot trail is clear enough to follow. The spur flattens and once the biv can be sighted below to the north, make your way down into the basin using the best possible route you can find.
