Moa Park Shelter

Point of Interest

Has not been rated.


This is an old hut that has had the bunks removed and been downgraded to Shelter status. It is on the Abel Tasman inland track between Castle Rocks and Awapoto huts. Toilets are available. Castle Rock Hut to Awapoto Hut Time: 6 hr Distance: 13 km The track heads northwards from Castle Rock Hut, then turns west and begins climbing. The gradient steepens and then levels again. The track then undulates for a while before descending to Moa Park Shelter (its 2 h, 3.5 km to this point), surrounded by the tussocks of Moa Park itself. There are two side tracks leading to lookouts; Porter Rock is a granite outcrop worth visiting for its excellent views. From Moa Park Shelter the track crosses a small stream and quickly re-enters the stunted beech forest. Upon reaching Evans Ridge it turns north, beginning a gradual descent to Awapoto Hut. No dogs.
