A well defined track leads to a small clearing beside Te Puke's original water source. The track crosses a stream before entering the reserve. It continues through a püriri grove to a small clearing beside Te Puke's original water reservoir.
Return via the same track or take a left hand turn below the reservoir to join with the Otawa Trig Track after 1 hour 45 minutes.
A well defined track starts at the end of Manoeka Road, off SH2 between Te Puke and Papamoa.
You must be well prepared when walking on conservation land, especially on longer day walks. Ensure you have strong, comfortable boots, a good raincoat, warm clothing, first aid kit, food and drink, a hat and sunscreen. It is also advisable that you leave your tramping intentions with a responsible person, in case you get lost.
