Kauritatahi <---> Puketutu Hut Link-up via Old N/S Tracks

Hey all,

We recently visited Kauritatahi Hut (via Thompsons) & Puketutu Hut (in via the Waiwere Falls (Animal Grave etc) & then out via a somewhat tricky to follow Maurihoro Stream Farm Track/Route). Has anyone walked recently along the top and following the 'Old North South' track between these 2 huts, Puketutu & Kauritatahi?

We went a wee way up the track, north towards Kauritatahi from Puketutu, it looks a bit overgrown, so just wondering if anyone had done it recently & if they could provide any beta (tips, time taken or even a GPS Track etc)?

PS: Was unsure if this was the best sub-forum to post this in, mod's feel free to move it as appropriate.

This guy put a YouTube video together on that general area. But not sure if it's exactly what you are asking.

Cheers for that Thousandhills, cool wee vid too but yeah nah we're familiar with all that lot, SH29 ---> Huriniu Hut ---> Maungamuka Hut ---> Ngamuwahine Clearing / Construction Site ---> Old Waiwere Falls Hut Campsite ---> Animal Grave Turnoff ---> Puketutu Hut.

What we want to know is the state of the (Old North South) track along the top of the range, that runs North from Puketutu Hut ---> Kauritatahi Hut Smiley

Are you talking about the track that goes past kauritatahi hut that follows the main ridge(te hanga)? When I went up there I found an old overgrown track. I'm sure I read on here there's a hut up there, is that the one?
