Summary

The hike to Stone Hut is a constant uphill walk for about 1 hour, rising to an altitude of over 800 metres. In the winter, ice and snow is commonplace, and you will need to be prepared accordingly. Due to the alpine region of this walk, it is highly recommended you carry proper protective clothing with you. You will visit plenty of small caves and will be amazed at the sheer cliff faces with massive overhanging ledges that you walk under. After an hour of hiking uphill, you will reach signage guiding you to Stone Hut. A 5 minute walk will lead you straight to it, a cave with a bed in it, and a firepit. Once you’ve visited stone hut, return to the main track and continue following the markers. You will reach more signage and you should head down Croft Track. Croft Track is a different walking experience from the Stone Hut Track, and was a little more overgrown in places as well. the hike continues taking you around massive stone cliffs, and magnificent stone overhangs. The walk along this track bypasses some small waterfalls as well. After another 2 hours of walking, you will reach an area on the track you will need descend. Climb down the steep section using a long rope that is supplied on the track. Continue following the track around the cliffs until you reach Bastion Cascades.
