South Ohau Hut
South Ohau Hut Tararua Range. One of the new standard 10 bunk huts. On a river terrace at the confluence of the South Ohau River and Butcher Stream. A nice sunny position given the narrowness of the valley. 2.5 to 6 hrs from Poads Road depending on fitness and river level. There is an easy gorge between the hut and the North Ohau Fork. About 85 river crossings between the hut and the old Ohau Shelter site. Manawatu Tramping and Skiing Club have marked an escape route up onto the Gable End Ridge in case the river is up The route starts about 100 metres up Butcher Stream
