It is a steep descent into Tinker's Gully where you will see old mines before taking a short walk back along the road to the carpark.
This loop is rough and quite muddy in places.
The track is accessed from Victoria Street, behind Tararu, just north of Thames. There is a small carpark at the start of the track.
