Once you cross over the Waiohine gorge swing bridge, follow the track up to Cone Saddle for a bit until you come to a fork. The track up to Mt Reeves is to the left (actually kind of straight ahead) and is not marked with a sign (however, there are orange triangles the whole way up).

After 1-2minutes you will reach a stream to cross (large orange triangle on the other side). Once crossed, you will begin the climb.

Near the top, the track joins onto the more well-trodden Mt Reeves track. Once at the summit, you then make the descent to Tutuwai hut.

From there, you follow the river up to Cone Hut. From there, you head back to the car park.
