Altitude: 831m to 1293m. Gain: 504m. Loss: 423m . Gradient: 12 deg (Moderate)
Skills: - Occasional rivers (3/5)
Drop to the forks, and pick up the marked track just upriver on the western bank. Rivers are ankle-knee deep, easy in normal flows but normal caveats apply given the large catchment. Good cut track runs up a spur, follows ridgeline south then drops west to Wakelings.
A second creek crossing is required at Wakelings. River is similar size to that at Maropea below the forks.
