March - 9th & 10th 2024 - Hut Mistake Creek (F/O)

We will be departing for the Eglinton Valley on Friday evening 8th March (after work), camping somewhere in the Eglinton that night.   Saturday we will head up the Hut Creek and then up and over 'U' Pass and descend into Mistake Creek where we will camnp for the night.  At this stage, if people feel happy there is a short jaunt to the head of Mistake creek to visit a lake.   Sunday Morning we will head down Mistake Creek and out to the road and home.   Whilst the trip is reasonably straight forward the saturday may be 8 hours of tramping and maybe 5 on Sunday.   Crossing Mistake Creek half way down can sometimes be a little trickey so a lot of care has to be taken.   This trip is weather dependent.   Mistake Creek on the Sunday is the bug bear.   'Plan B' is Homer Huts for the weekend.
