Marked tramping track to John Reid Hut and the Arthur Range tops. NB - the start of the track requires an un-bridged crossing of the Wangapeka River. Normal flow is knee to thigh deep. Once across the river a short flat section leads to a steep zig zag up a face which leads to the end of the ridge (approx 1 hour). The track carries on along the ridge climbing steadily from 600m to 1292m . From the bushline follow blue poles across a steep face to the hut (approx 45 mins to traverse).
