Mountain Bike to Boundary Creek Hut

Originally added by Nico babal

Distance: 18 km (11.2 miles) roundtrip. Minimal elevation gain. Fantastic high country views. Refurbished hut.

The track to Boundary Creek Hut follows an old 4WD track for about 9 km () with minimal height gain on the way in. Not long into the ride, you will pass another 4WD track with marker poles – this heads to the Garden of Eden (not the glacier one), so keep on the main track.

About 2 km (1.2 miles) from Boundary Creek Hut you will have reached the highest point on the track. You will pass another 4WD track poled route, which heads towards Mystery Lake in behind Lake Clearwater. From this point, it will be all downhill to the hut, and this is the steepest part of the track.

At the bottom of the hill, round the corner to arrive at Boundary Creek Hut, an old, corrugated iron hut in a big, open, sunny spot right beside Boundary Creek. It has about 6 bunks inside, concrete floor, an open fire, table with chairs and even a couch – talk about a bit of backcountry luxury.
