Access to the Young valley is signposted on the left, 2.5 km north of the Makarora Visitor Centre. Cross the stile and follow the orange poles to the junction of the Young and Makarora rivers. If Makarora River is too high to cross safely, there are three options: wait for the river to drop; take the Blue-Young Link Track or use a commercial jetboat. Once across the Makarora, follow Young River on the true left to a swing bridge at the junction of the North and South branches (3 - 4 hours).The track divides after the bridge, and the Young Forks campsite is 200 m upstream, with an open shelter, toilet and fireplace, which campers are encouraged to use.
