The trail joins a rough gravel road for the last stretch which is quite tough on your feet. If you feel up to it keep an eye on the left of the road for directions to the natural rockpools that resemble jacuzis called the "Twintubs".
The hut is a little further along the road.

- Take a break and swim at the Bloukrantz crossing. After the crossing there is little shade.
- Keep an eye open for the "Twintubs" rockpools - situated before you reach the hut.
