Description

This is a standard four-bunk hut Located in Ruahine Forest Park in the Manawatu region. Fees apply. Bookings not required - first come, first served. Facilities include open fire heating, mattresses, non-flush toilets and water from a stream. Previously there has been vehicle access to Kawhatau Base through private land but this access is no longer available. Access is now by walking up the Kawhatau River from the Rangitane road bridge across the Kawhatau River. Please note this route may not be accessible during times of high river flow. To get to the Rangitane road bridge, head just north from Mangaweka and turn right off SH1. Cross the Rangitikei River and follow Kawhatau Valley Road. This eventually leads to Upper Kawhatau Valley Road which becomes Rangitane Road. 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.
