Poads road to the pines via tarn ridge and over mitre.
Ohau means from Poads rd, across farmland then track past old ohau shelter to river. Then, no track up river to hut. There used to be alot more shingle in the upper part of the ohau about 10 years ago and it was a bit easier than now. The Pines is the name of the road end you start at for the Barra track into Mitre Flats Hut.
