From Jollie Brook Hut, the track crosses back to the western bank of the Jollie and heads upriver through thick beech forest. The forks are reached after 500m. The track swings west up the western fork, climbing 100m to the saddle before sidling the southern valleyside of Gabriel Stream to the Hurunui flats below. The track emerges at a signposted track junction beside the Gabriel Hut clearing. Good, marked, cut tramping track.
