Description: 

The entrance point is marked and begins about 200m from the main car park. When the trail forks, take a left and continue to follow the track as it loops around a small area of the forest and returns to the car park.

The winding trails and shady pine filled lanes are perfect for a peaceful stroll. During the autumn look out for the colourful fungi that changes the forest into a fairy tale woodland.

A useful map may be obtained from the Bottle Lake Forest Information Centre and is recommended to prevent disorientation.
