From the carpark cross the large swing bridge and head along the single track. You soon reach the first waterfall which is worth a look. Then head up the steep hill which can be gloriously muddy in winter. At the top of the track you reach a lookout over Tongoio falls. From the lookout follow the track up the hill. It meanders through some native bush before skirting around the edge of some pine forest. After a few km's you reach state highway 2. Carefully cross this busy road and head into White Pine bush. This is a short easy little loop with some nice bush. Then cross the road and head back the way you came.
