Really nice walk and very well maintained and signed. So many epiphytes up in the canopy and a nice little creek. Very humid the day I did it. Well worth the trip. Be aware no phone service.

We enjoyed both rereading about the history along this track, as well as the rainforest. We have never seen so many birds nest ferns in trees. In some places it seemed like just about every tree had one in it.
