Mole Top

A new place for all three of us, Anthony, Jesadah, and me. The Mole hut is a good destination as there are two tracks; one up the river, and one up the ridge on the rivers true right.

The location of Mole Hut.

To get to the Mole hut on the Mole Top's we drove up the Tutaki Road South leaving the tent at home as we assumed that there would not be anyone else there. So when we get to the Mole track start there is a car parked there. Hmm. Got bivvy bags so we headed off up the track. And what a track it turned out to be. Its across farmland to start with and then drops into the river until the final couple of kilometers which are again a marked track. The following picture is of the track beside(in) the river.
The hut is in a nice wee meadow just out of the trees, and yes someone was there. Two someones. For a four bunk hut five was no problem as the bunks are two of the shelf types.

Next morning it wasn't such a hot day, jackets for the rain to start with,
 The walk out Jameson Ridge track is pretty nice forest.

Another of those tracks that are spread across two maps, you need:
  • BS23 Matakitaki
  • BS24 Mount Robert
    Some misguided being with an imaginary friend had left a wee book at the hut. I took it out and have returned it to the NZ Bible Society. So if you are out visiting back country huts and find one, it can be returned to 144 Tory Street, Wellington.

    I just about died when I read the last bit! Thanks for keeping the hut clean and free of rubbish, we will do the same!

    Very well said! Same rubbish left in another hut close to that one recently.
