Dolans Hut - Paradise Trust


One of our best kept secrets, Dolans is nestled on a hill with spectacular views of Cosmos Peaks and Turret Head. 

There is no road access to this hut. Instead you take your belongings and walk the 1km track through mature beech forest.  The hut is set in an elevated clearing that rewards you with breathtaking views up the Dart Valley. Guests staying at Dolans must park their car in the main car park by the office.
