Above Red Stream, the Glenrae continues broad and open for 1.5km with easy travel on river flats - crossing as required. Above that it becomes tight, gorged and bushy. Travel is in the riverbed on wet rounded river rocks. Crossings were ankle to knee deep in average midwinter flows.
The track to Glenrae Biv starts 100m below the forks, marked with triangles. The track climbs steeply over the spur and then sidles down into flats in the western fork of the valley. The biv is on the true right, 100m upstream of the bottom of the flats - well upriver of where the 2009 topomap shows it.
