Tales from HutReno Trails
The experience of getting out into the New Zealand bush and being a part of regenerating and restoring the DOC tramping huts for future trampers to enjoy is enormously rewarding. With each project we will share the volunteers’ stories here to give you a sense of what goes on and the triumph of completion when each HutReno project is complete.
The Department of Conservation in New Plymouth has asked HutReno to repaint the historic 'Camphouse' on Mt Taranaki. The project has been inspected and it requires very little work. Apart from it being an honour to be involved with this project, there is no tramping...
A restoration of Christopher Hut is scheduled to take place during the first week of April 2020.

Tramping with HutReno
