Description
Waypoints (0)

This forest path meanders through the green lower gullies of Forest Island, which is a hill that has been isolated and carved out by Hacking River and Bola Creek over time. The area features rich and biodiverse rainforest, with tall eucalypts, casuarinas and cabbage tree palms. Great for all fitness levels, especially for kids and for a picnic at Bola Creek picnic area. When there is recent rainfall it can get slippery in section. Variations to make your trip longer can be made with the nearby tracks that link up.

Shaded walk due to thick trees. Not very hard to walk on.

Lovely green rainforest mostly in shade, this is an excellent walk for a hot day. With some gentle inclines and just a few stairs this will suit most people. Dirt paths (no boardwalks).

Easy, short and quiet track in the forest. We took our parents to walk this track with us and they very much enjoyed it.

Rainforested Ridge.. Excellent in all weather though wet may cause some slip. Don't want to rush...

Went out to day with family after a wet week in Sydney. Trail was wet but completely fine and easily walkable. We went off the path a couple times to get better looks at the water or other things but even those paths seem to have been well worn. Lots of different types of vegetation and it kept our 6-year-old engaged. One of our favorite walks and we’ll definitely be back!

Stunning scenery and easy for an entire family to do. One of my favourite walks in the national park. Almost reluctant to give it such high praise so I can keep it to myself it's that good! Check it out if you are looking to spend some time in nature and want an easy walk

Awesome easy track. Great for all skill levels as it’s short and easy. Amazing rainforest vibes. I’ve done the track twice and the first time (in March) I got a lot of leeches. Second time (in May) I used ‘Bushman’ spray and got no leeches. Raining both times which was beautiful to here raindrops hitting the trees above as I hiked

Great trail! Hit the track late in the afternoon with three little kids - they nailed it. We were the only ones on the trail and we’re lucky enough to see a deer crossing the river, could hear lots of movement in surrounding bush and shrubs but well camouflaged. A very easy to follow path. Will be back again soon!
