This is not a tourist attraction - I hope it stays that way. If the needy tourist is catered for it would only spoil it. Don't expect signage, carparks or cafes. It is simply a road with trees on either side. The trees are just doing what they do best, and few do it better.
If this isn't your sort of thing, well, you were told. If it is your sort of thing then you'll love it. Get the right time of year and time of day and it becomes somewhere else.
