Bunch of whingers in the hut books – Dissing the quality of the track. DOC do an awesome job of looking after thousands of miles of pathways. Having such an extensive and well maintained hut and track network must be unique in the world surely. Besides, it’s good to keep a few tracks on the more ‘challenging’ end of the scale. Or things would get boring :)
This is apparently the most demanding part of this section. Judging by the comments in the hut books, I think there’s been some work done on the benching in recent years because the track seems in pretty reasonable condition now, and the DOC times on the generous side.
