Note: Described in the reverse direction to your journey

From the Raspberry Flat car park cross the bridge over Big Creek and follow the 4WD track up valley through farm land. After 10-15 minutes you'll pass the turn off to the popular Rob Roy Glacier track. The track continues, usually following the 4WD farm track but sometimes making its own way, marked by snow poles. Its flat going except for one set of zig zags over a bluff above the river. After 1.5h pass the historic Cascade Hut (NZAC private, locked hut) and continue on to Aspiring hut.

Note: The track passes through farm land almost all the way to Aspring hut. There's several fences to go through, all of them with stiles built over them. It probably goes without saying but please keep all farm gates as you find them and don't disturb stock.
