This walk begins at the William Corbett Scenic Reserve, in Ōkato. Follow the track through lowland bush alongside the Mangatete Stream to the end of the scenic reserve. From here, the track passes through private property, before coming out onto private farmland. Be aware of electric fences. There is no public access bridge across the Mangatete Stream, so return the way you came.
On a clear day, you'll have views of Mt Taranaki (Mt Egmont) and the Pouakai Range.
