It is mainly graded gravel 4WD road all the way to the top. Some rugged parts with loose heavy stone on the 4WD track.
The bottom 6k from the main road are fairly straightforward incline, the remaining 8k are very steep in many places. It's a pretty easy to follow route. There is a gate to pass through that contains a number to call for access (021 438120 or 03 547 8840 - but this is best done in advance).
It is possible to drive up this road to shorten the trek but would recommend a 4WD or very sturdy car as it is steep. One section nearer the top I was told to take a left but I thought that looked pretty obvious.

Not sure that any of the ford crossings are safe to drink. Best to carry your own supply.
It would be very muddy after rain, it is very exposed at the top and can be quite windy and cold. There was a notice saying the fords could be difficult to pass in a 2wd drive car so assume they could be high after a rain.
Just your usual loose stone
