A short distance from Bobs Hut, the track crosses the river to the TR (not possible in higher flows) and stays on the TR whilst under the trees. The side streams make for quite a few boggy sections.

Once at the clearing (from 1070m contour) pick your way across the grassy flat, crossing and recrossing the stream. In high flow, keeping to the TR would be OK but would take longer.

Jan 2021 Note: Heaps of windfall exists in the middle 1/3rd of this track. Add ~1hr to navigate windfall and bush bash. It is worth it to stay with the track the best you can before/during/after windfall sections.
