From the bridge over Cupola Creek, the track climbs steeply through to Upper Travers Hut, relenting only infrequently. After a km, a marked side track leads down to Travers Falls.
The track continues to climb to a swing bridge that crosses to the TR and again resumes the climb to a clearing in front of the hut.
