A one hour walk brings you to the start of the Cloudy Peak Track where track markers lead you through the Dry Creek Conservation Area before you commence a steady climb along a 4WD ridge line track to the Neinei i kura Conservation Area. From this point an unmarked 4WD track leads to the 1526 m summit of Cloudy Peak.
From Cloudy Peak a visual highlight of this sprawling landscape is wide open skies and views of the Upper Clutha plains and peaks towards St Bathans and the Lindis.
The car park access to Dry Creek, Cloudy Peak and Neinei i Kura is located on Ardgour Road, Tarras. Ardgour Road is a loop road with access either 2 km north or 6 km South of Tarras.
