Lyell Saddle hut  Sept 2011

This recently built hut was started in April 2011. It was initially lived in by track builders but is now open to the public. Bookings are required and a fee of $15 per person per night is payable to the Old Ghost Road Trust. Book via this website http://www.oldghostroad.org.nz/experience-the-ogr/book-huts

This hut has been built as part of one of the NZ Cycle Trail Projects. It is the first of four new huts on what will be the Lyell-Mokihinui section of a 160km cycleway/tramping route.

The Lyell Saddle hut sits on the dividing ridge between Lyell Creek and the South Branch of the Mokihinui River. It is a two roomed hut with a big porch. It sleeps twelve. There are good views from the hut into the Mokihinui. It is so popular two sleepouts have been added at Lyell Saddle to boost accomodation capacity.

  • ledge ledge Sorry, but some hut info is out-of-date. Lyell Saddle Hut is open, but must be booked at : www.oldghostroad.org.nz (I have stayed 2x at Lyell Saddle Hut, and walked the entire Old Ghost Road in Nov 2013.) Check out the full route guide entitled 'Old Ghost Road' on this site.
