The trail partly follows a creek with intermittent pools and lined with dense vegetation. Near the end, there’s a gate and direction signage to a pool partly encircled by rock. Expect to see water goannas, which are common around rocky pools. They are great swimmers and will dive in if you get too close.

Early morning is an excellent time to see many species of birds. The brilliantly jewel like azure kingfisher is sometimes seen flittering about low hanging branches above the pools.
