Ranking: 7/10

Lovely forest area, peaceful and toilets at the end. Many wee sports to pull in and park up along the gravel road. After heavy rains be mindful where you park as some areas would only be suitable for a 4wd. Not alot of cell reception off SH5 but decent for getting away from everything for a night or 2.
