In the among the limestone are dense groves of nikau and huge northern rātā, providing a primeval feel. The walkway goes through a narrow slot in between huge of slabs of limestone, to a platform that overlooks the farmland around Clifton and further out across Golden Bay. The second half of the loop takes a slightly longer route back to the car park.
