From Buster Hut the poled route heads ESE across the head of a small creek and follows the spur down to the Little Kyeburn below. The final descent is a steep zigzag between bluffs. Crossing the river twice the track sidles down through the gorge to reach flats beyond, where it joins an old 4WD track. This leads 2km SW to Little Kyeburn Huts on the Mt Buster Road - generally accessible by 2WD vehicles to this point.
