Old Man Hut | Mt Richmond Forest Park
A great little hut set in a sizeable clearing.
Often missed by trampers due to the steepish 250 m descent through mountain beech forest from the main Alpine Route track, with that elevation needing to be regained in the morning.
Lots of camping around, and a few goats.
