Sirimon route begins near the small town of Timau on the A2 Nanyuki – Isiolo road north of the mountain. The road to the Park gate leaves the main road 1 km from the bridge over the Sirimon River. This is the least used access point to the park because of the rough and hilly terrain it must pass through.
