Ella Range Tops and Mt Watson, (Matakitaki Route). 1
From the site of Matakitaki Base Hut (now removed) an old cut track goes up Watson Creek. Tussock basins lead to the range north of Mt Watson. The tops can be followed north to Mole Saddle, or southwards (keeping on the western slopes just north of point 1870m). An old cullers’ route south of Peak Creek to the tops (shown on map M30) is not signposted and is difficult to follow.
