The Rangiwahia Hut Track provides stunning views of the wider region including Mt Ruapheu on a clear day. The start of this track enters the bush beside the car park and begins at a steady grade. After crossing the awe-inspiring arched-wooden bridge, the grade becomes steeper, heading up through smaller shrub species and past a waterfall to reach the Rangiwahia Hut.
The hut is a serviced 13 bunk hut, which includes water, heating and cooking facilities.
The walk to the hut takes approximately 1.5-3 hours, depending on your fitness level. If you are planning to stay in this hut, you will need to pre-purchase hut tickets from a DOC office or the local i-SITE.
