Lyell Saddle hut Sept 2011
This recently built hut was started in April 2011 & is now more or less completed but is not open to the public yet. The hut is being used at the moment as a base by track builders who are building new track for one of the NZ Cycle Trail Projects. It is the first of three new huts on what will be the Lyell-Mokihinui section of a 160km cycleway/tramping route.
The Lyell Saddle hut sits on the dividing ridge between Lyell Creek and the South Branch of the Mokihinui River. It is a two roomed hut with a big porch. It sleeps twelve. There are good views from the hut into the Mokihinui. The hut is owned by the Mokihinui-Lyell Backcountry Trust and will be available for public use similarly to DOC huts.
