The hike to Brewster Hut (parking at Fantail Falls) is not easy as this suggests. It’s incredibly steep the whole way, but you’re rewarded with incredible views of mountains, a glacier and waterfalls. The hut itself is pretty nice with a large deck area. There are no stoves but there is drinking water available. There is a river crossing right at the beginning so don’t bother putting your shoes on till your across. It would be difficult to cross following a heavy rain. Follow the orange triangles on trees all the way up!
