Head downriver from Daphne Hut. Usual route is to cross the river at the hut, descend the last of the flats to the 1st forks. River then enters a gorge and frequent crossings are required downriver. River is generally knee deep but can easily flood. The next forks are 500m downriver. A DOC triangle on the downriver, southern bank marks the start of the track up the spur to Longview.
