Six hardy souls prepared for rain and began the lovely stroll through the forest before reaching the rockier trails. Recent rains had helped the mosses to pop out in colour, but possibly the most stunning visuals were the fungi. Many we were able to identify, but a small, white cauliflower shaped fungi with shiny red and black markings was unknown and stunning.
Lunch and a rest at the lookout is always entertaining, watching various boats pass by, especially with so many whirlpools gathering below in Seymour Narrows. We could see rain coming and so after half an hour, began to return to the cars, only getting drizzled on along the way. The rocky parts of this trail are tricky when wet, so we were all very careful and arrived safely. A lovely hike, as always. 10.0 km; 4 hours for walking and lunch with a one hour drive.
