Departure Point: Contact Leader

Current plan is to leave Friday night and drive to Hokitika, staying overnight, and start walking on Sat into Cedar Flats Hut for a very early lunch (and a dip in the hot pools?). We then follow the track to Mullins Hut and spend the night there. Sunday we will make our way to Serpentine Hut, crossing the Diedrichs Range from Mullins Hut. Monday we will be using the recently cut track (whatever that means) following the Hokitika River from Serpentine Hut all the way out to the gorge. If the weather is somewhat questionable, we may want to do the trip in reverse to avoid getting trapped by flooded side creeks in the Kakariki Gorge of the Hokitika. Information about the general terrain can be found at the permolat website ( Reasonable weather is quite essential.
