This is a walk up to the Red Hills plateau above Red Hills Hut. We will travel to the car park (570M) for the Red Hills track on the Wairau Valley Highway. It tavels through a patch of beech forest before joing a 4WD track that brings us to Red Hills Hut (900M). We will have morning tea here, then head up behind the hut through tussock to the broard Red Hills Plateau. We will seek out a trig point A4BF (1131M) then a slightly higher point at 1160M. We will walk in a NW direction across the plateau before dropping down through tussock to the Red Hills Track and on to Red Hills Hut. There are no definate tracks from Red Hills hut and beyond, but I remember it being relatively easy to walk through the Tussock - gaiters advisable.
