|Parked on the road to West Carswell, right by a gate. The road verge has been filled with hardcore, presumably to assist logging lorries to pass. Head NE, to edge of forest, over a small knoll with boulder on summit. Entrance to narrow forest ride is not clear, but once inside it's easy to break off a few more very dead twigs and branches to emerge at the pool near the summit, which 5 trees in to the N. Broad ride (path noted by others) continues N.||Minto||03/07/2019|
