Architect Creek Hut | Copland Track
Architect Creek was once useful when stranded by heavy rain, or now by the seven hour walk into the Welcome Flat hot pools. Due to the surrounding forest the hut is shaded and therefore can be damp. It’s also small.
But it’s cheap, and can be used as a base for a day walk up to the hot pools if the Welcome Flat Hut is fully booked.
