Carlyle Hut

In 2016 the Trust secured funds to renovate a DOC tramping hut in the Carlyle Valley.

In November 2016 a team of enthusiastic volunteers began clearing the track to the hut.
A few more trips were required before there was better access to the hut.

In April 2017 work began in earnest. Volunteers and a helicopter were on hand to get
materials to and from the hut. Over the next few months rooms were washed down, walls
primed and the first coat of paint applied. Furniture was scrubbed and fixed, and the all
important toilet repaired.

The outside of the hut was sanded and had a first coat of paint applied, windows repaired,
roof wire brushed and painted and the fireplace and chimney repaired.

As well as the maintenance work on the hut being carried out, the tall grass surrounding the
hut was also cut down.


By May 2018 work on the hut is almost completed and is definitely a more comfortable place to enjoy
the beautiful surroundings.
