Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web
Bring your hiking boots and trek across the 1.4 km (0.8 mi) Big Tree Trail as you enjoy the sites and sounds of nature. Enjoy the 200-to 300-year-old trees that once filled the entire national park as you make your way through the lush green rainforest. Listen to the sound of local warblers singing while you cross one of many clear mountain streams. The asphalted trail is moderate in difficulty, has some steep climbs, and is full of covered picnic areas. It leads to a beautiful 10 m (35 ft) waterfall, which cascades down into an exquisite little pool. Go for a rewarding swim in the pool following your hike.

  • Road of ups and downs until you reach the waterfall where you can have a refreshing swim. The road is makes long and is take each 30 min. It carries water. Large trees and palm trees but very little wildlife. The path is well signposted and is safe. It carries suitable footwear for walking in the mountains.

  • Very nice trail but be very cautious with children it's slippery.The trail is about a mile long and will take you about 25 minutes to reach the best part where there is a waterfall.
