A reasonable maintained marked route / trapline runs down the true right (south) of the Glaisnock from the Taheke confluence to Henderson Burn. The henderson Burn is knee deep and slippery in normal flows and can easily become impassable after rain. A rope is sometimes present to aid the crossing, but had been severed when I visited.
With the exception of the Henderson Burn itself there are no major creeks to cross. The track is marked intermittently with tape and blue triangles.
Good bush campspots exist on the track at the Taheke forks, Nitz forks and on the downstream side of the Henderson Burn.
