Mikonui Flat hut

This is the first of the DOC huts when heading up the Mikonui River. It is on the TL about 700 metres above the confluence with the Tuke River. It is only a 3km walk from the roadend on easy going but the Mikonui River (and also the Tuke River if you cross below the Tuke) need to be forded to get to the hut. Both these rivers can be problematic to ford after heavy rain and snow melt.
