Otamatapaio Hut (Oteake Conservation Area) – Weekend Trip

June 11, 2022 @ 8:00 am - June 12, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

This hut is in the Oteake Conservation Area, just to the south of the Waitaki Valley.  It is 15 km and 4 to 5 hours to get to the hut.  The plan for the weekend is as follows …
Saturday:  Start at Backyards Road, which runs off SH83 through the Waitaki Valley (before Sailors Cutting), and walk 5 km on a 4WD track before getting to conservation land.  Then follow a marked route for 7.5 km through private land, and then a further 2.5km to Otamatapaio Hut.  The route follows an old farm track along the river for most of the way.
Sunday:  Explore the area further up behind the hut, then walk back out the same way to the cars.
