If you want to walk by yourself and just enjoy being alone in the forest then this is the walk for you. Walk at your own pace to discover the rainforest and follow your particular interest looking for birds, insects, ferns or just the chance to be alone.
Enjoy a refreshing swim in the cool waters of the Paku river and a picnic lunch before returning to HQ. This walking trail begins on the Deer Cave plank-walk but after about 1.3km you climb down to the forest floor and follow the clearly marked trail. It is an easy walk but there are streams to cross and water levels can rise quickly so you must check at the office and register when you are leaving and later inform Park Security of your return.
You need good walking shoes and it is often a very muddy trail so be prepared to get dirty.
High risk for getting lost if you trekking beyond the Waterfall to Camp 1 without a guide,
