The nature trail is a 30 minute walk in the rain forest by the Franklin river and the Surprise river. We saw mushrooms in various colors: yellow, orange, blue, red. Almost everything is covered with green moss.

Amazing safe outdoor experience headed by Brett - aka Roger Federer of the rapids with fun fit and fabulous Abigail and Jayde. Food was AAA; the body develops some muscles and the repartee kept the jaws loosened. Don’t do it with anyone else.
