The tracks of the first loop are excellent, even in wet conditions. The second loop’s tracks are very good as well.
The two loops connect at a picnic area next to the stream. Extending the walk is an easy choice; the most huge and impressive old trees are found on this track, including King Kahikatea.
A boardwalk encourages visitors to stay off of the roots of most of the trees in this area. This kept me close to the huge King Kahikatea, and I was unsuccessful at doing it justice in pictures.
I’m happier with the pictures of the giants below. Unfortunately I’m not able to accurately identify them.
The pics above and below were shot on a sunnier day when dangerously wet tracks cut my walk short at a nearby reserve.
Walks in White Pine Bush are very easy, and popular with kids. On my first visit I met a couple of boys with their grandparents. They collected an impressive number of painted rocks. There were far more here than anywhere I’ve seen, at least before these kids finished their walk.
