“Ancient cedars along the shore, amazing sunsets. You really can't find anything like this anywhere else. One of a kind!"

The main parking area is at Brown's Beach. You can also park at Tugwell Field on Forbes road, then walk or cycle the bike path along the highway to the trail just 10 minutes away. Please leave bikes at the trailhead, bikes damage the trail and are unsafe for other trail users.
Toilets at all main trailheads, but no water
A portable toilet is provided at Ancient Cedars trailhead, but no running water.
Keep the trail wild!
Please pack out doggie bags and anything you carry in. There is no clean-up crew following you! Please also stay on the trail to keep vegetation intact. Side trails into the forest or on to rocks are often wildlife paths and should not be followed. The forest has many layers of trees growing on fallen logs so solid ground is a maze of cavities that will collapse under foot.
