Detailed description

This route starts along the main Risdon Brook circuit track then after the prominent bay there is an offshoot track that leads quickly to a gate.   Once over the gate it just a matter of following the mostly distinct old vehicle track steeply up over two hills before dropping a short way to a junction with a higher grade track.  From here it is a matter of climbing over the hill  to eventually meet a fence line and eventually up to the Grasstree summit.  A vehicle track heads north then west and on leaving the track head south over the hilltops to another rough vehicle track.  This eventually leads to the north western end of Risdon Brook Dam.
