Located in the newer part of Namadgi, at the southern end of the Bushfold Flat, behind Mt Tennent. The other hut, also referred to as Reads or Bushfold or McMahons sat at the northern end of Bushfold Valley.
This one may also be known as Dr Pearsons or Reads Hut. There is much debate over the correct naming of this hut. "Reads" is generally considered the historically correct name, but local farmers and personalities more commonly refer to it as "Dr Pearsons". Bushwalkers tend to call it Bushfold. The hut is in good shape.

A popular hut, the pine compartment surrounding it was harvested just before the 2003 fires, during which it was unfortunately burnt down.
