From the signposted Otutu Hut turnoff, the Manson Tops track continues SE across broad tops. After about 500m the track starts to swing south & a stamped metal signposted junction is reached with the main poled route dropping south off the main ridge towards Manson Hut & a poled (though not shown on maps) route continuing SE along the ridge to Manson Biv.
