Starting from the signpost on Cemetery Rd, you follow the yellow markers up through the farm paddocks. Continue following the markers for the duration of the track. After about 2.5km the track enters a stand of native bush and winds it way through. Once out, there is a little sidle then one last hill to head up before reaching the trig at the top of the track. There are different options for making your way back down and these are signposted clearly.
