This track is a fairly direct route down from scrubby tops, plunging into light beech forest. The track is consistently downhill, and not unduly steep. As the track enters taller forest with a sprinkling of podocarps, you come upon the nature walk. Take the track either direction, but off to the right is slightly shorter return to the car park. 

The most obivous way to walk this track is from the car park at Glentui Bush Road: take the Mount Richardson Track, then the Blowhard Track, then the Bypass Track down to make a 4-hour circuit.
