Getting there
Getting there
drive up Mt Misery Rd into Glencoe Station and follow the 4WD track past Red Hut to a DoC carpark near Pt 635. This final section of the track deviates from what is marked on the topomap. From the carpark, you can get to the visible lodge either of 2 ways: Drop 285m down a well-marked and cut and attractive DoC track to the river, cross it and ascend 160m directly to the hut. Or follow red waratahs up to the 4WD road and descend the spur to the hut.
