From the car park, a short walk leads up to Flora Saddle (1000m). The Mt Arthur Walk branches off to the left here and eases up to the hut on the bushline at about 1300m.

Mt. Arthur Hut • Serviced Hut (DOC). Capacity: 8.

A short walk onto the alpine tops is worthwhile from the hut. If you are adequately prepared, longer walks to Mt Arthur (1795m) or Gordons Pyramid (1489m) are options.

From the hut, a track heads northeast, along a ridge just on the bushline, and then drops easily to Flora Hut.

Flora Hut • Basic Hut/Bivvy (DOC). Capacity: 12.

The final leg up Flora Stream to Flora Saddle and out to the car park is easy walking.
