Track easy to follow with markers, but is technical in places and has 11 river crossings so care is required.
Cross the ford 20m after the start of the track (no dry feet on this run) and follow a well formed track for approx. 2.8km where you cross back onto the true left of the river. After approx. 1km the first of 9 more river crossings is reached. After 2km more you will reach a small grassy clearing. Resurgence is 20m further up. Track is well marked, but gets progressively more technical as you head further up the valley. River crossings are not too tricky, but care and experience at rivers crossings is required if doing solo.
Not to be attempted during or after heavy rain. Keep your eyes peeled for whio and in summer take a dip in one of the many beautiful swimming holes.
