About this hut

Getting there

Times from nearest road end and hut
  • Lees Valley Road: 4–5 hr via Youngman Stream Track

From Oxford, follow Ashely Gorge Road for 6 km. Turn into Lees Valley Road and follow this for 29 km to a sign that indicates the vehicle track. Follow this marked track (it's generally negotiable with two or four wheel drive vehicles) for 3.5 km to a locked gate and car park. Keep to the marked track as this is private farmland.
