Trust/ Poulter Hut | Arthurs Pass National Park
Trust/ Poulter Hut is one of the numerous NZFS SF70 huts that abound in the South Island backcountry, originally constructed for the deer cullers, this is a particularly well preserved example, it’s still maintains an open fireplace. The only modification is some clear roofing which allows more light in.
Despite these charms you do wonder why anyone would stay here as opposed to continuing to the more amenity rich Poulter Hut which is less than an hour up the valley.
