From the signposted junction, a tramping track climbs briefly NE onto the flat tops above. From there, old bulldozed track runs NNE along the ridge to the former hut site through regenerating scrub and gorse. The ground is clay and it becomes a skating session after rain.
A signpost at the former hut side marks a turnoff east to Smiths Stream Shelter - the Dobson Loop track. A chimney is all that remains of the former Dobson Hut.
