From the signposted junction 200m south of Otumore, the poled track east to Longview drops steeply off the range towards the Pohongina saddle. The track is well trodden and well marked with warratahs - but note that this section of the range is subject to severe winds.
Crossing the saddle the track climbs slightly and swings south to skirt west of pt1232. The unmarked route NNE to the Tukituki/Daphne starts at this corner. 100m later a signpost is reached marking the junction of the track up from Kashmir Rd with the main range track. 100m south again, a further signpost marks the turnoff to Longview Hut, 50m east off the ridge.
