Triangle Hut is a six bunk hut situated between Rangiwahia and Iron Gates Huts in the Oroua River catchment. It sits above the river on a raised terrace. You will need to set out early for this one, as it takes you up past Rangiwahia Hut, and over the Whanahuia Range then down on to Triangle Hut.
This can take approximately 6 to 8 hours. From Rangiwahia Hut, head to the top of the Whanahuia Range, then head north for about 40 minutes to where the Triangle Hut track turns off and descends steeply down the eastern side of the range.
Due to travel on the open tops this section should not be attempted in poor visibility or bad weather. For experienced hikers.
