Don't be fooled by the distance of this trail. The walk up to the entrance of the forest will require some effort. However, once you enter the forest your breath will be taken away by the beauty that surrounds you. There is a waterfall at the end of the trail.

    Stunning little walk through the forest leading from the hotel. After the fire (of many years ago) the forest is perpetually changing, as older trees fall down. An easy walk for all ages and fitness levels. The dam at the top is very beautiful.

    Nice relatively easy hike and mostly in the shade of the trees - with the changes underway in the forest lots of photo opportunities for those with an eye for such things or just to take in nature in transition.
