Black Birch Bivvy | Ferny Gair Conservation Area
The old Black Birch Bivvy was relocated in 2015 from down adjacent to the stream up onto the tops, and also extended to be more than double the original size.
The two bunks are in the compact original structure and up an 800 mm step.
Note that the last 100 m or so to the bivvy are not well marked. Helps if you have a GPS app.
Great view down the valley to the Pacific.
