It starts as a 4 wheel-drive track then continues up the hill as a tramping track for 1½ hours to the Ski Club huts.
From here it becomes an unmarked route to Downhill basin and Page Shelter. On clear days there are outstanding views of the surrounding peaks and in summer the basins offer wonderful displays of mountain flowers.
Return exactly the same way!
