Rerekapa hut in hidden in the Moki Forest an easy 1 hour 20 min walk. To the south of Moki Forest is the popular Mt Messenger Forest, great walks and hunting
In the map above, if you zoom in on the walk, you’ll see all the following track points and their location. Each point has photos along with a description about each one.
The last tunnel before driving down to the farm land. It’s a great place to stop and get out of the rain. At the bottom of the hill, over on the right is a large stand of Macrocarpa trees. This was the site of the first village in the area in the late 1800. Drive past the stock yards on the left and around the sharp right hand corner. As you round the next left hand corner you will see the red shearing shed ahead of you on the left. 100m past the shed on the left is the gate to the track. Look for the green sign post. Don’t drive though the gate if the ground looks a little wet, it is a good walk to the next farm house, and if the farmer is out the back of the station you will be waiting all day for him to tow you out.
Just follow the orange markers across the farm land but look across to the ridge on your left you can see the old farm track running up into the bush. Do not drink out of the farm creeks you do not know what has been lying in them. Getting across the creek, swamp can be very tricky if it has been raining. There was a rather big slip just as we entered the bush, but with a little crawling and hanging on tight to tree roots we made it across to a very easy walk to the hut. It was a very easy track to follow and to walk on. The Rerekapa hut has had a major upgrade and clean up which is really nice. If you have time up your sleeve walk on to the Rerekapa falls about another hour and a few minutes.
