I drove the car into the forest past the yellow barrier and kept going until I got to a cross track of sorts and parked on the RHS track of the cross road there is a wooden hut of sorts. On the way back where I parked the car suited me as I crossed the stream at a bend and followed the fence through the forest to a track whick led directly to my car. My car position I had saved on the GPS. A very enjoyable walk with fantastic views.
