Drive towards Bright via Hume Highway, Wangaratta and Myrtleford. Take the turn off to Mt Buffalo near Porepunkah. Drive up Mt Buffalo and once you have reached the Buffalo plateau, continue on past the left turn to the chalet, past the park ranger's office, and Reservoir Road is on the right about 200m past the ranger's office. It is about a kilometre from the chalet turn-off. Reservoir Road is good gravel. It is about 3.5 km to the reservoir where there is parking and a shelter. Because the walk is already long, it is essential to begin at the reservoir and not walk there from the sealed road.
