This hike was a lot hard than I anticipated, but the views were fantastic! It says the hike is 8 hours, but mine was 6 from Rawihiti to the hut at Cape Brett. A lot of up and down with careful footwork needed on a sometimes narrow path with steep drops. I do not think many people do this hike, so I was actually the only one at the hut that night, Althea it sleeps up to 23. I walked down the next day to Deep Water Cove and had the place to myself to swim. Fantastic! I was even startled by a sting ray while swimming. :)
I only give it a 4, as they warn against the water in the hut being contaminated by salt, so I did not use it.
To get there and back, I hired a water taxi from Paihia. Since I was the only traveler, it was pricey....
