Route Description

This short walk is waymarked from the main car park.

These walks are situated in a working forest environment and may be subject to diversion and closure from time to time.

The Waterfall Trail follows the Torrent River upstream passing mature oak along the way. A Western Red Cedar has matured and where the lower branches of the tree have reached the ground they have rooted and developed into trees. Where the trail bridges the river and the season is wet, you can see the picturesque waterfall with its open stone bridge. After this feature the trail passes under a stone arch and past a magnificent Wellingtonia tree. Before arriving back at the car park a moment or two can be spent by the tranquil waters of the pond where you might be fortunate enough to see a kingfisher.
