Distance 13.87 km Duration 7 hrs 35 mins Ascent N/D meters Length Multi-Day Location Wellington Trip Grading Fit

A pretty hard 2 – 3 day tramp with the ascent of Mitre being classified as falling into the “fit” category. The walk into and out from Mitre Flats Hut is only 8.6km each way but does take 4 hours due to slope, real back-country grade of track with more roots than are usually seen. Mitre Flats Hut has 14 bunks, coal burner – but a wet wood supply when the coal runs out – gas cookers and gas the year round plus a roof-tank water supply. The walk in from the road end to Mitre Flats is 8.6km with an altitude range of 200 metres whilst it is 5.6km from Mitre Flats to the top of Mitre Peak with a gain of 1253 metres.
