From pt1440, follow the broad ridgeline south, swinging slightly west to reach pt1270 where you hit a corner on a boundary fence. There is a clear 4WD track on the south-east side of the fence, but this is on private land. Legal access is to follow the western side of the fence down the ridgeline, remaining on crown land.
Junction Hut is reached the the base of the spur. Not shown on maps it is 200m north of the 'Disused Gold Mine'.
