Dickie Spur hut

This hut is in the scrub tussock transition zone on a spur running east toward the Tuke River off the northern end of Dickie Ridge. The Tuke flows into the Mikonui River.

Dickie Spur hut is a good base for exploring Dickie Ridge and the head of the Tuke River. It used to be a cosy hut when the stove was there but DOC removed the stove.
