Tantalus-Arboretum Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This short, almost flat loop gives you a taste of real tropical forest, even though you are only a few steps away from a suburban road.

Head slightly uphill from the trailhead sign to find the beginning of the loop, which you can hike in either direction. Starting to the left (clockwise), you first have to negotiate a shallow, usually dry stream gully next to a broken footbridge. After that, the rest is easy walking. The forest is lovely and green, alive with birdsong, dense with ginger, palms, guavas, mosses, and ferns. You’ll feel as though you are inside a terrarium."
