Paton’s Hut is a 5.4km, grade 4 Return hike located in Kosciuszko National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 hrs to complete.

Summary

This walk (or mountain bike) follows the Dargals Trail from near the Tooma Reservoir spillway to Paton’s Hut. Most of this walk is through tall eucalypt forest before heading down to the edge of the Tooma Plain to find Paton’s Hut. The iron hut was originally built in 1934 for grazing and was rebuilt in 2005 after the 2003 fires. The hut provides a great place to camp overnight or just rest before walking back.
