Love the big tall and straight trees reaching up into the sky whilst underneath there is lovely ferns and a small waterfall. There are lots of tracks to follow and that means you can make your walk longer if you choose.

Lovely walk through the forest, and easy to find the car park. On a bank holiday it can be very busy but I'd imagine every other day you'd get a nice walk to yourself.
