Follow Reserve Road SW for 150 meters to the end. At the end of the road turn left following the trail marked "Link Track". At the top head to Reserve Road, go through the gate and left along the road to the end. At the end of the road turn left following the trail marked "Link Track". This track zig zags down the hill. Look for another blue "Link Track" sign and turn right at the junction a few meters after the sign.

At the next junction turn right and head down hill, through a grassy area, over a culvert and follow the track which turns left and up hill. At the next junction turn hard right and zig zag up the hill to the gate. Go through the gate and continue straight to the road. Turn around and zig zag back down the way you came to the base of the hill.

At the junction (where you turned hard right to go up) continue straight ahead, over a plank bridge and up the hill. Follow the trail as it climbs slightly to a signposted junction by a road end. Turn hard left and start the steep climb up some stairs and steep track. This continues through some bush and into open farmland. Follow the trail along the ridge, through a gate and back to Reserve Road.
