Heading towards Clyde from the car park you follow the 150th Anniversary Track for approx 3km until you cross over the Fraser River. Take a left on the grassy track at the DOC sign and then follow the orange poles. Once out of the trees, you have a choice of directions to do the loop. Heading left you follow the poles up through the tailings first meandering through the old relics and piles of rubble. You'll eventually reach the 4WD track which is grassy and overgrown, expect to get wet if its damp. You reach back the original junction, follow back the tracks back to the car park.
