From Whites Clearing to SH35 a good 4WD track climbs to the head of the Parahaki Stream then descends the Waipunkuri Stream. The northern end has frequent fords which could, conceivably become impassable after heavy rain.
The route crosses private land, and so the usual stuff about dogs on leads, bolts out of rifles, stick to the marked route applies.
