Go right at top of hill, you come to a spot with 4 tracks forking off - take the one on the left with the warning signs. If you take the single track to your right it will lead you up to trig.
Follow the forestry track until you see the single track on your right and head down this. Note: there are some open areas but the track is easily identified. You come out onto a open hill and get a magnificent view of the Tararuas before joining back onto forestry trail. Keep left as you drop down this forestry track, it becomes quiet a steep down hill so take care here.
This will bring you out to the road. Swing left and follow the road, which becomes gravel in less than a km. After 2.2kms you find a forestry road with a gate on your left, go through this and follow the track back up. You will come to a junction with the option to go straight or to the right - both lead to the main track, but the right is slightly longer and a bit steeper. Follow the trail all the way back to the T-junction and head back down the hill to the car park.
