Easement Track is through Private land, however access does not require you to have landowners permission and is public access. It is a Poled Route.
This route is part of the Further Faster Canterbury Hills Collection
Start the Mt Nimrod loop anti-clockwise and head up through a technical section of the bush, follow DOC signposts up to the Hunter Hills Conservation Area. You will get to a large stock gate, leading you into private land (public access). Follow the poled route on a 4WD track up into the Conservation Area. Once you are in the Conservation area you head over a stream and into tussock lands where you will follow a 4WD track, heading SE (note this is not a poled route.) Continue the ascent, the track becomes technical before reaching the saddle. From here you can go to Mt Nimrod or start your descent back the way you came.
