Hacket Hut | Mt Richmond Forest Park
The refurbished hut isn’t so far from the roadhead and therefore gets a few day trippers and mountain bike riders passing by. Despite the flow of Te Araroa trampers raring to move on, it is in reasonable condition.
There’s a fair climb, 1300 m, before the next hut heading south—Starveall Hut.
