From the picnic area at the junction of Scenic Drive and Mountain Road, a gentle graded walk leads past the historic cemetery to a large kauri; then continues down gentle grade and crosses a small stream to rejoin Scenic Drive, 500m north of the picnic area (15 minutes).
Two branch tracks link this walk with Turanga Road. The first branch is on the right 30m before the large kauri and meets Turanga Road on its first bend (5 minutes); the second, 200m beyond the large kauri, continues downhill to meet a small stream and emerges at the end of Turanga Road (10 minutes).
