A poled track crosses Moorcock Stream then heads north on the true left bank through paddocks before swinging west towards the tops through regenerating scrub.
It’s about an hour to the ridge crest and track junction from the forest edge, where you turn left towards Longview Hut.
A sign indicates 30 minutes, but it can take an hour and takes in the high point: peak XIIA no. 2 at 1232m.
