Mid King Biv
Mid King Biv (2 bunk, mattresses, stream water) is a small biv just below the bushline at the head of Baldy Creek and directly below Mid King peak. It sleeps 2 on two mattresses - the floor is on 2 levels, so fitting three could be uncomfortable!
The hut is in mature beech, sheltered by ridges to the north and south-west. A good sheltered fire-spot lies in the lea of a boulder outside. It would make a great spot to escape to from bad weather on the tops - or just to get away from the crowds.
An unmarked, but well travelled route leads up and down the ridge just to the north of the Biv, from Mid King peak to the conflunce of Baldy and South Mitre creeks 1km from Mitre Flats Hut. DoC triangles mark the descent from the ridgeline to the hut, but the remainder of the route is unmarked.
