Starts at the Mt Koinga DOC trailhead sign. It then follows up a 4wd farm track for the first 3km. Near the highest point, you will see a saddle on the left, leave the 4wd track and join up with the Kanuka Track which is a poled route. You then follow the orange markers poles down the track into Logantown. The track then winds through the old goldmining ruins up through Welshtown and is pretty clearly defined and marked.
