Barlow Hut

Ruahine Forest Park

In 1983, Barrie Atkins of the NZFS had $50000 to spend in three weeks. So he purchased two huts from Fraemohs Homes. Barlow Hut was installed on the Makaroro River, while its twin, Sunrise Hut, was built at Buttercup Hollow on the Ruahine Range to the southwest. Notes from "Shelter from the Storm" by Barnett, Brown, and Spearpoint.
