This track starts at Kellys Creek Shelter beside SH 73, three km north of Otira Village. It is a steep climb through rata/kamahi forest and subalpine scrub. This leads onto the tussock grasslands which surround the hut on the Kelly Range. On fine days there are good views from the saddle behind the hut looking down the Taramakau River to the West Coast.

A steep climb in the bush opens up to alpine vegetation. Sitting atop a gentle slope sits Carroll Hut. The view from the small hut was fantastic. We took a day trip from the hut to beautiful blue alpine lakes. Kiwi calls could be heard in the night from the hut.
