Downriver from Te Totora Hut, travel is easy on the southern bank of Te Totora Stream. 300m from the hut a signpost marks the old overgrown overland route to the swingbridge, and a track continues downstream for the river route. The track peters out shortly before the confluence, where it crosses to the western bank (for those continuing downriver).
