Cass Saddle Hut | Craigieburn Forest Park
Not too many of the old-style huts like Cass Saddle Hut still remain on popular tramping tracks. This windowless hut is a real blast from the past. It has a strange configuration with two small rooms, the triple height bunks and an even more bizarre pair of not quite full height doors.
The hut is just below the bushline surrounded by trees and there are some excellent camping spots 100m up the track towards the saddle.
