Lovely quiet spot. It is just a pity that the nursery is closed when we come on the weekend. It would be great if one could buy at this time, since it is our only free time.

Suitable hikes for people with various experience. It's especially nice to see oncoming hikers with their dogs. People at the visitor centre were helpful, though it seemed that they were 'on duty' and may not necessarily be very happy to be there.
