The Forest Walk begins in the picnic area and gently winds through native bush and crosses Waipohatu stream. This track brings you out at a second car park area where you can choose to progress to the start of the more rugged Waipohatu Waterfalls Track, or follow the road back down to the picnic area or simply return through the forest walk.
Don’t miss the historic diesel hauler on display in the lower picnic area.
The area also features several camping spaces, picnic tables and a toilet.
