About 9.5 km from the freeway exit look for a gravel road to the right that is signposted Bunding-Blakeville Road. Take this road for 1.3 km to a picnic area at the bottom of the hill on the left hand side of the road. This is the start and finish of the walk (Grid Reference (GR) 499450). There are no car park gates or fees payable.
