If the river is high take the all weather track, following the true left bank and crossing a number of side streams before finally climbing over a bluff and dropping to the hut. If the river is low, you may follow the riverbed. Tracks to the hut: ChaliceGoulter Track. Before you go, buy 1 Standard Hut Ticket (blue for adults, yellow for youth) for each night's stay.
