Griffin Creek Hut

A small but lovingly maintained DOC hut in an isolated valley that is home to a number of blue ducks. The hut features an outdoor bath and many home touches -- dried leaves decorate the windows, oven mitts, umbrellas, sandals, and even a planisphere are available for use. This hut is only visited a few times each month, but is a treasure.
