The walk follows over 1km of wooden board walks and bridges across streams and is entirely wheelchair friendly and ideal for the elderly wanting to visit the forest. There is a number of wooden benches and tables along the trail to sit, snack, picnic or enjoy your 'padkos'. Water and ablution facilities.

Trail of around 2 km in the forest. Relaxing. Need to be attentive to be able to track the birds. If you're coming from Plettenberg, you need to do a U turn to get to the place.
