Best place to start is at the end of the sealed section on Aylmers Valley Road, ca. 200 metres east of the entrance to Garden of Tane. Or park in the parking area alongside the Garden of Tane.
A pleasant and easy walk along a gravel road, that becomes increasingly rough and ready as you head east. After about 1 km, at the end of the gravel section, a metal gate gives access to the reserve.The path crosses a stile, then curves around through a stand of kanuka trees, and climbs over a bluff to the small but charming waterfall. Note: stay right where the track to Misty Peak branches off.
