Mid Caples Hut

A new $535000 hut opened February 2014, to replace the smaller hut on the site.

The hut provides pleasant views over the grassy flats of the mid-Caples Valley and into the ranges beyond. Mid Caples Hut is situated on the popular Caples track, part of the Caples - Greenstone circuit, and can also be used as part of a shorter circuit from the Dart via Scott Saddle and/or Sleepy Hollow.

The hut offers a warden and flushing toilets during summer months.
