There are two entrances to Anderson Track from Scenic Drive; either opposite the top of Peripatus Track or down the old driveway 300m to the north. Both lead to a clearing (site of the former homestead) where the track descends into bush and follows a steep ridge down to Waitakere Stream. From there the track is fairly level and continues to Auckland City Walk near large kauri.
