Huxley valley branches off Hopkins valley and is an open, grassy riverbed as far as Huxley Forks Hut, a popular destination for trampers. Some of the last remaining sites of Pittosporum patulum, an endangered shrub, are found in the Huxley valley but are under threat from possum browsing.

Getting there

The Mackenzie Basin is situated in the centre of New Zealand's South Island. It features mountains, lakes, rivers, beech forest remnants and rolling tussock country.

All of the tramping tracks described here involve travel through mountain or silver beech forest.
