Dart Hut campsite, Mt Aspiring National Park
Although lesser-known than the nearby Routeburn Track, the Rees-Dart offers great tramping through a wide range of different landscapes – from lush meadows and gentle streams, to rocky alpine landscapes, dense beech forests and glaciers.
With a large landslip and severe erosion around Sandy Bluff closing that section of the Dart Track, the Dart Hut campsite can only be accessed from the Rees Valley or, for the adventurous, via the Matukituki Valley and Cascade Saddle.
