From Horseshoe Flats hut, the track downriver starts as a roughly poled route over tussock and flax flats and down the riverbank. Later it becomes a marked tramping track through the bush - easily followed but boggu in places. A signposted junction 200m downriver of Blowfly Hut leads to the hut via the swingbridge, or you can drop and ford the river at the hut if you prefer.
