A few shots from a pre-Easter tramping trip into Griffin Creek Hutvwith my partner Hana and friends Katie and Bridget. Griffin Creek drains the Tara Tama Range, on the western side of the Main Divide about 46km past Arthur’s Pass Village. This trip’s a reasonably cruisy weekender (it does have steep climbs) but the days are relatively short. We did it as an out and back, but there are possible circuits either off-track or on unmaintained tracks. The present route is kept open by the wonderful volunteer efforts of Permolat.
