Semi derelict hut from the days when gold miners walked & stock were driven from Canterbury through the Amuri Pass and down to the once thriving gold mining town of Ahaura. There was once an impressive swing bridge for stock just below the Flat but it was pulled down just before it reached 100 years of age.
Follow the Ahaura-Kopara Road approx 20km until an old logging road heads off to the SW. (NZTM E1498446 N5301390) If you emerge from the beech forest on to farmland you have overshot by 1.5km Walk or 4x4 drive about 2km down the old logging road to where a benched track leaves on the left just past a parking bay. The track start is not sign posted but quite obvious. It winds its way a short distance down through tall forest to the grassy Hamers Flat.
