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.
