A marked route / trapline runs down the western (true right) bank of the Glaisnock from Henderson Burn to Glaisnock Hut. The track/route leaves the river at the last bend before the hut and follows the base of the western valleyside to the hut.

There are good bush campspots on the south side of the Henderson on the track. Other than Henderson Burn there are no major creeks to cross.

Henderson -> Hut: 1.5-3 hrs
