Waipawa Forks Hut

Ruahine Forest Park

A bit rough considering it's a newer DOC hut - vandalism in the bunkroom on the right. 5 minutes up a steep track on the true right of the Waipawa River. Water can be found a little further up the track flowing from a tin spout inserted into a natural spring.
