This is a marked public access easment through private farmland. The public conservation land starts at Landslip Creek. From there, there is a marked route uphill to Braemar Dome under Mt Stevenson. The track is good for easy ski-touring in winter.

Follow SH 8 north of Twizel for 18 km. Turn into Hayman Road at the bottom of Lake Pukaki, then into Braemar Road. Look out for the DOC sign for the car parking area.
The public access easement runs along the top of what is an ancient glacial terrace. This makes for enjoyable and easy riding. Ride in and return the same way.
This is a shared-use track. Follow the mountain bikers code: respect others, respect the rules, respect the track.
