An old, intermittently maintained (by volunteers) track leads up to Mullins Hut from the Toaroha
Valley. Mullins Creek enters the Toaroha about an hour up from Cedar Flat as a spectacular waterfall.
Cross the bouldery river, okay in ordinary flow, and find the track start 50 metres downstream from
the Mullins junction and about 30 metres up a small side creek on the true right of the creek. The
track climbs and sidles into a side creek, goes up the creek for 20 metres, and then climbs out on the
true right to a small scrubby ridge. Beyond, it sidles into a creek, goes up that for 50 metres, and then
climbs out on the true right and follows a ridge over a knoll into Mullins Basin.
The Diedrichs Range is accessible up slopes to the north-west of Mullins Hut, between two small
creeks where scrub is minimal. Slopes above lead to the range near the basin saddle (where there is a cairn) between Pts 1610 and 1780 metres. To descend from Mt Ross to Mullins Hut, drop into the
basin west of Pt 1251 metres and pick up tape in a creek at about J34 571989 / BV19 471 373 to avoid
thick scrub on the spur.
