From the carpark at the end of Falls Road, Whatitiri Track leads over a grassy picnic area into paddock, then descends via a tractor track to cross Waitakere Stream. The track continues through bush for 300m to a grass clearing and on through the first farm gate. The track turns left up onto grassland for 700m through two more gates, then turns again to follow the bush boundary as the track climbs to meet Long Road Track.
