Hey that looks awesome - any advice about how to best access the hope range tops?

I had to ask Ben as I cant remember, he was driving, I was probably asleep.

And he said:

There’s access from the dry-weather road between Tapawera and bottom of Spooners. I think there may be a DOC sign. You drop down a farm track, cross a stream, and up to the start of the track. That track can also be reached via logging roads (turn off further north, towards Tapawera – I don’t remember the name.)
