Stopped to break up the drive and stretch the legs. Relatively flat path, well marked, picnic tables and toilets here with ample parking. Plenty of fungi around, mossy trees and a running river.

Be aware that the signage says picnic stop but there is a short walk that is a definite must see. Lots of beautiful lichens and mosses all throughout this rainforest. There are also toilets available.
