Lilybank Road to Red Stag Hut
Track category: Tramping track
Time: 8 hr
Distance: 25 km
Keep to the 4WD track initially as this is a public access easement through private farmland. You will pass a sign for Te Kahui Kaupeka Conservation Park when you reach the park boundary. Red Stag Hut is very small so carry a tent in case the hut is full.
Four wheel driving
The track is popular with 4WD vehicles due to the long distances to each hut. Keep to the track.
This travel travels along stony flats.
Mountain biking into Red Stag Hut is a rougher ride than to Macaulay Hut. Mountain bikers can continue up Godley valley as far as Separation Stream, which is where the 4WD track ends.
