Description

The first tramping hut I ever visited and it may surprise you that I continued if you ever get to see the "bus stop". This hut suffers from being an hour or two from the road end although its built to survive a nuclear blast should this be required. A brick shelter (not officially a hut) can give a comfortable if exposed night to the desperate but most people will camp down by the river.


Getting There

Smiths Creek Shelter can be reached from Kaitoki Roadend via either the puffer track or the side of Marchant Ridge. You can also access the shelter from Tutuwai down the Tauherenikau river.
