From the southern end of the Indecision Lake, head south over the dam wall and then follow the valley of Indecision Creek down to Lake Te Anau. Deer trails are intermittent and there is much vegetation and windfall to negotiate. Initial travel may be easier on the true left of the creek, but be sure to cross to the true right before the creek becomes too big to cross lower down.
A large flat terrace is reached, 20m above Lake Te Anau. This can be followed west to the western side of the valley fan. From here travel is along/above the lakeshore all thew way to flats in the Worsley Valley. Vegetation is more open in the first 10m above the lake and initially this provides the easiest travel. A couple of bluffs 1.5km before the Worsley Flats require a climb and scramble, after which terraces 20m above the lake provide better travel than the bluffy lake-shore. The entire traverse is scrubby, steep and littered with windfall, and much cursed by hunters I've spoken with.
Eventually the flats of the Worsley Valley are reached, and you can travel on the marshy lake shore, or on dry beech terraces just above it, until the sandy beach in front of Worsley Hut is reached. The hut is visible from the shore and the track to it marked.
Indecision Lake to Worsley Hut 6-10 hrs
