So interesting to learn about these amazing trees & contemplate their age. There is a good boardwalk surrounding it & short pleasant walk into the forest. Provides great habitat to the birds you see fliting through the long branches.

It’s really giant tree (think avatar got some inspiration from such a tree) really liked the small walk. No other visitors during our walk which made it extra impressive. Walk well done preserving the nature.
