Karamea Bend Hut

Newer, bigger hut than the original, which is now locked up for DOC workers. Pity, coz it had such an amazing outlook over "the bend". A harder barn to heat up, this one sits on a terrace next to the Leslie River.

Access

From the north: Two days from Flora Saddle roadend, via Salisbury Lodge, down the Peel and Leslie Streams. From the south: Two days from the Wangapeka Track, via Thor, Venus & Crow Huts.
