Blue Mountain Station -
Grade: Easy 15 -
We will meet at the Monument on Clayton Road on Friday evening and drive
out to Blue Mt Station and stay in the recently restored Basin Stream Hut that is perfectly positioned up stream of the Orari Gorge. We have a stunning view of Mt Peel from the hut door. Ian and Louise Wynn restored this hut last year and has been our family holiday spot for over 20 years! Early Saturday morn we will tramp to visit The Hat on Hat Spur, then travel to visit the Edith Hut on Mt Edith. There is an option to return for those not wanting to visit Edith hut. On Saturday late afternoon we will have a well-
Sunday, we pack up and travel to the Sand Stone hut in Bernard Stream
and if time permits visit Totara Spur Hut in the next gully. Both Sunday
huts we can mostly drive to save time.
I thought it would be nice to share our evening meal on Saturday night because we are driving to the hut. 4wds will be needed. We will be joining Methven Tramping club for this trip.
