Branch Creek Hut

Branch Creek hut

Access 1/ From Owen Valley East Road via Frying Pan Creek & Fyfe River.

2/ From Granity Pass Hut via any of several saddles that drop in to Nuggety Creek then down the cut track NW of Point 1500m to the hut. (2-3 hrs) [The saddle N of Point 1552m is recommended by DOC but either of the two saddles S of Point 1552 can work well and involve less climbing. If using the saddle immediately S of Point 1552m sidle SW (upstream) a bit for an easier crossing of Nuggety Creek avoiding scrub and bluffs]
