2955 Leitches Clearing

Weekend 7th - 8th August 2021

On Saturday morning we will go up Leitches track 17km return 2-3hrs each way. It's a former surveyed road and is well graded. The track passes through farmland and climbs before entering bush. The track descends to Leitch's clearing - walk across the clearing to reach the hut. There are no major streams to cross on this track. At the beginning it goes through Whareorino forest. There is supposed to be the Archey's frog which is rare which you may be able to spot on the way. It will be a walk in and walk out on the same track. 

There are mattresses, a wood-burning stove for heating and a toilet are provided. You will need to carry a portable stove for cooking. There are only 16 bunks and its first in first served. You will need 1 standard ticket to stay. There are many areas suitable for camping in Leitch's clearing but if you want to camp and use hut facilities you still need to purchase a hut ticket.
