Head through the pest fence and immediately left up the fence line and onto the trail. Follow the trail all the way to the top, through the top pest fence, and into the lookout area.
Grab some pics of the horse and the views and then head out on the White Horse Link Trail at the opposite end of the carpark from where you entered.
Follow the trail down the fenceline and then into the open grass and brush area. At about 4.5km the grass trails split. Take the right-hand trail that has the trail marker on it.
Follow this trail as it descends and eventually merges with the Bellbird Track, head right here and soon you will reach another intersection. Head left here and down Quail Track.
Follow Quail Track to the bottom onto the Railway Trail, turn left and follow this track to an intersection by a carpark on the right. Here you turn left and onto Ngaio Track.
Climb and climb and climb a bit more.... and then head right onto White Horse Link Trail and head up to where the trail split earlier and from there you retrace your steps to the start.
