Uncle Roddus Tramping Diary: Tramp No 171
Benmore Hut 11 January 2020
I had been aware of Benmore Hut and 13 Mile Bush for many years and it is virtually on my doorstep and on my eventually list, just never made the attempt to go there until now.
A relatively easy walk across some farm land and then native beech forest along well formed track. About 6KM to the hut. This was a CTC club trip with about 20 participants. The pace was relaxed moderate with plenty of stops. The hut was full of hunters when we arrived with three more hikers coming in intending to stay the night so it was going to be a busy evening. Then after a pleasant lunch as the wind started to get up, it was back out the same way.
