From the main car park, enter the track on the topside of the grass reserve on the Morrinsville side. The Big Red track travels on a wide path through mature Redwoods near the road until you come to a split in the track. The Big Red track veers left at a sign and begins its downhill descent. The top track continues near the road until it intersects with the Dam road. Note: the top track is 2 way so care is required. You can also enter the Big Red from the other direction on the top track. Big Red zig zags across the hillside ducking a diving around huge redwood trees before exiting near the ford below the spillway.
