An old 4WD track, now abandoned, leads up the valley floor from Shamrock Hut. The good track ends after 1km, but a vague track continues on the opposite river bank (east) crossing back 1km before Hagens Hut. It is also possible to continue up the western valleyside on grass and scrubby flats.
Hagens Hut is tucked in the bush. A short 4WD track climbs to the hut from the river.
