From the track junction 1km east of the Styx Saddle, the benched pack-track climbs gently and heads over the low but boggy tussock saddle into the Styx, and on to Grassy Flats Hut. A crossing of the Styx River is required at the hut, but this is small and would only pose difficulties after heavy rain.
