This is a standard 6-bunk hut in the Motueka area. The hut is located just above the bushline where the route sidles across the northern face of Slaty Peak (1544m). Located in Mt Richmond Forest Park (and part of Te Araroa Trail) this hut is on the Alpine Route that runs from Starveall Hut through to Tarn Hut, and is mostly above the bushline, ranging from 1000-1700 metres above sea level.
