The first 200 metres of picture postcard rainforest streams belied the last third of the trail on high. The slope is gentle for the first two thirds but the sweat still dripped off my brow as I passed through the masses of herringbone ferns that overgrow the trail.
Then you cross a tiny stream and it gets rugged and the trail only just wider than both my feet side by side; some of the drop-offs were steep and this was obviously where the sticks would have come in handy. I figured no-one from my bushwalking fraternity would ever do this trail as more sweat poured out when I scrambled up a particularly steep part, over fallen logs and stumbling on rocks.
