One of our unique activities at Forest Creek are the Hiking Trails in the Cloud Forest.
The trails are designed for the entire family, and are most suitable for the even not-so-fit person. Under this canopy of trees and at the edge of the Mountain one feels very small, in comparison to the magical views.
The walk to the waterfall is approximately 2 kilometres, winding through the forest and criss-crossing the stream in several places under the canopy of large indigenous trees.
One is likely to hear the baboons barking and spot the odd bush buck or red duiker and see the Cinnamon Doves, Narina Trogon's and Lourie's that frequent the forest.
In the wetter months the ferns, orchids and wild mushrooms offer spectacular opportunities for the more photographic inclined.
A tree platform built in a large fig tree above the forest canopy, is an ideal stop for birders or to just relax and enjoy a picnic!
Scattered in the forest are remnants of old stone structures some of which are supposedly several thousand years old and are under study at present.
The forest is beautiful, friendly and safe.
