From the Oamaru Hut the track follows the true left bank of the Oamaru River to Waitawhero Stream. The track crosses the Oamaru and follows the Waitawhero Stream to a saddle. At this point the track emerges at the forest edge of the upper Ngaruroro. Across the valley the Boyd Airstrip can be seen. (Boyd Lodge is obscured by beech forest).
