TTC Cone Hut
Cone is an open hut, and part of the DoC Back Country Huts system. Cone Hut has a historic designation.
For detail of the hut's building history, consult Ron Pynenburg's 1981 thesis 'Huts of the Mount Hector Track' In it Ron details how TTC members constructed the hut during the month of June-November 1945, then the hut was officially opened in March 1946. Interestingly, quite a few of the original totara slabs were pulled from either the old Cone Saddle Hut or Top Tauherenikau Hut, both of which were then derelict.
