The best way to access this cairn is to follow the keepers track from the Westerdale road NZ645084.
The cairn has been robbed of much of its stone but some of the basic structure remains including 2/3rds of the kerb.
In 1953 Paul Ashbee excavated a similar sized cairn 3km to the north on the other side of the Leven valley and found a rock cut pit surrounded by irregular boulders set in a rectangle "with lozenge shaped stelae at opposing corners."
