Ada Pass Hut | St James Conservation Area

Ada Pass Hut is nestled in the forest, in a sunny spot, that’s if there’s any sun about, with a splendid view up the west branch of the Mariua River, more a stream here.

That’s also the start of the Three Tarns Pass route over to Bobs Hut in the West Branch Matakitaki River valley.

If the rainwater tank is low, there’s always the small creek not so far away.
