On SH63, ca 3 km east of Tophouse junction; car park on left. Requires dog permit: contact Nelson visitor centre.
After an undulating walk through beech woodland, this walk heads up an old vehicle track onto the open expanses of the Red Hills. From there, it heads northwards for some 16 km to link with the Hacket Valley and Goulter Valley tracks, as well as the Wairoa River Left Branch.
