Field Hut, (20 bunks), was comissioned and built 1924 by woodsman Joe Gibbs for the Tararua Tramping Club. It was the first hut the club built, followed later by Kime Hut, Tauherenikau Hut, and Cone Hut. It is a club owned public hut in the Tararua Forest Park, located near the bush edge, on the Southern Crossing track, above Otaki Forks.

Field Hut has a historic designation, and has the distinction of being the oldest tramping hut in the Tararua Forest Park, and the oldest remaining hut specifically built for tramping. There is a display of historic photos of the hut in the hut.

In 2004 the Field Hut 80th was celebrated.
