Zeke's Hut
Nice little walk. Area around hut has become very overgrown. The entire track is thick with hook grass so bring gaiters and possible pants. It's pretty bad.

Waitewaewae track
The newish cut track that bypasses the major slip is a shocker, five hours to waitewaewae is a good effort.

Its only 3 hours from kaitoke to hut. Not the four and a half everyone quotes. One hour from carpark to forks. 45 minutes over saddle to river and an 1hr15m up river to hut. Its in stunning condition. Oh and its Eastern Hutt Hut. After the Hutt river.

DOC have recently installed, unsympathetically, new pinus radiata bunks, totally ignorant of the historic value of this near original NZFS hut .

The rat problem seems to be taken care of. Bait station under hut and bait in plastic bag in hut. Be careful it ain't tea. Classic hut.

The track up from smith stream is an awfully fun track to climb. If you want things easy stay home.

Tussock creek is a great way to get to the hut. Good scree slope then speargrass dodging.

Sidle Track took me 3 and a half hours from Cow Creek, but is as rough as guts with 900m of climbing up and down steeply . A couple of spots where it would be easy to lose the track and ongaonga to boot . The gorge back to Cow Creek took two and a half hours and I didn't get wet above the waist . Quite a bit of rock scrambling is needed to achieve this though . Though the gorge was about as low as it would get because of the long dry summer we have had . A nice gorge to traverse and would not recommend the sidle track to my worst enemies . A traverse of table ridge would be preferable .
