Routeburn Flats Hut | Routeburn Track, Mt Aspiring National Park

Routeburn Flats Hut is one of the two original huts still left on the track although it has been recently modified and with a large picnic verandah area added for the numerous summer daytrippers.

Routeburn Flats Hut is set on the edge of the big tree red beech forest adjacent to the Routeburn with a splendid view across the flat up the North Branch.
