Forest path offers an easy hike through Royal National Park’s rainforests. This beautiful walk leads you past a variety of native plants and flowers, including eucalypts, casuarinas, cabbage tree palms and Gymea lilies that are home to a range of birdlife.
This almost-circular loop is suitable for walkers of all fitness levels and is a great one for the kids. Following Forest path, you’ll cross the lower slopes of Forest Island, a hill isolated by the valleys of Hacking River and Bola Creek which almost surround it.
One of the park’s oldest tracks, it begins just south of Bola Creek, 0.75 kilometres along Lady Carrington drive. For a longer walk, the track also links up with Couranga walking track. Or, you can stop for a picnic at the nearby Upper Causeway picnic area.
