From Parau Track near the Huia Stream swing bridge, Farley Track passes over gently undulating ground with several bridge crossings over the stream to a small waterfall; from here, a graded track climbs to Kakamatua Ridge (45 minutes). The track then descends to and crosses Kakamatua Stream before a gradual ascent to join Panto Track, 300m from Huia Road.
