Sleepy Hollow is most easily reached by following the ridge on the true right of the creek which drains it (north-west side). Cross the Caples at the confluence at the base of the river flats then head up the true right of the creek which drains Sleepy Hollow. Eventually you'll pick up the clear spur 100m NW of the creek. The spur is in mature beech and clear of undergrowth all the way to the bushline at about 1400m. From here views of the Mid Caples valley flats and Ailsa Mountains beyond are fair reward for the climb.
