Mackenzie Hut | Lake Sumner Forest Park
A well preserved hut, with a few renos: woodburner, bunks, benches. In a delightful spot well might track an attractive valley, ie, it’s a lovely walk in just a simple slip to climb around. Plenty of moss, both on the track and trees.
A popular spot for hunters during The Roar, March/April, and otherwise not much used.
The splendid hot pool is right on the track, can’t be missed, 100 m from the river junction. Seems to be exactly the right temperature and configuration for a solo tramper.
Yeah, this is a hut worth visiting.
