Starveall-Lee Loop

This project required construction of an 11km uphill track on a 10% gradient from near Hackett Hut (1) up towards Starveall Hut to connect with an old tramping track (2) heading south-west towards the Lee (3). DOC has however refused permission to put the track through an ultramafic clearing on the ridge so this is now off the table.

We are currently working on other options for access up to the start of the Starveall singletrack and out down the Lee on the legal road. The Lee Valley dam has added uncertainty to this too.
