Follow the riverbed downriver from Grough Hut. A 4WD track traverses the eastern valleyside but is on private land and permission may be required from Glen Lyon station to use it. The two huts (Station Hut and Le Crens Hut) are both private and permission is required from Glen Lyon to use them.

At the confluence, cross the Hopkins River to reach Huxley Lodge at the 2WD roadend.

Both rivers are broad and shallow and easily crossed in normal flows, but can flood. It is possible to travel up to Red Hut on the true right of the Dobson / true left of the Hopkins if the rivers are up.
