This historic hut is set on a river fan of the Hopkins, with surrounding beech forest, in Ruataniwha Conservation Park. Built in 1916 for commercial guiding to the Barren Saddle by, Red Hut was used mainly as a mustering hut by the Huxley Gorge Station. It is a standard 12-bunk hut. Fees apply. Bookings not required - first come, first served. Facilities include heating, mattresses, non-flush toilets and water (not treated - boil before use). Red Hut is 4 hours (15 km) up the Hopkins Valley from Ram Hill carpark, at the end of Lake Ohau Road. Tracks to the hut: Hopkins valley tracks. 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.
