Starting at the reserve, head up the poled route until you meet up with the dam access road. Follow this up the hill until you reach the stile at the end. Then it becomes a single track marked by poles, follow this along until you reach Plank Creek, where you will have to get your feet wet and cross the Roaring Meg creek. Continue following the poles up until Tuhoys Saddle. It's then an easy cruise down the farm road/pack track until you reach the Cardrona Valley Road. Head along to the left for another 1.7km until you reach Cardrona township.
