Moa Stream Hut, Craigieburn Forest Park
Relocated in 1979 from across the Wilberforce River after a flood swept it off its piles, where it was known as Cedar Hut.
Can be somewhat hard to find, but has a large DOC orange triangle on the forest edge, shortly before you hit Pukeko Stream. It is set in what was once a windfall-created clearing, although the forest is growing back and it’s fairly dark. The hut is in good original condition, although a much-needed roof light has been added. Mostly used by hunters.
