In its lower reaches, Sir Robert Creek is scrubby and seriously gorged. Sir Robert Hut is approached
from Homeward Ridge. The Poet Footbridge gives access to the track up Homeward Ridge, or else
the ridge can be accessed from the upper Hokitika River, up the spur on the true right of Steadman
Creek. Descend to Sir Robert Hut from Homeward Ridge at J34 591932 / BV19 491 316 by following
a rib due east overlooking a creek to the south. Around the scrub edge, descend towards this creek,
reaching it at about the 980-metre contour. Follow the creek down. This creek is the first one marked
on map sheets J34 and BV19 below Sir Robert Hut on the true left of Sir Robert Creek. Travel on up
Sir Robert Creek is all gravel to its head.
