Wangapeka biv

[Also known as Little Wanganui Emergency Shelter & Little Wanganui Bivvy]

This biv is situated in the headwaters of the Little Wanganui River on the TL about 2.5km below the saddle. It is in a tiny clearing a few metres down a side track off the Wangapeka track. The biv was very damp and uninviting inside when we had a look at it in June 2009. Some scrub needed cutting back to provide sunlight and air drainage. No doubt it would be more inviting in Summer conditions.

Access

The quickest access is from the West Coast end of the Wangapeka Track. ie The Little Wanganui roadend.
