This was one of my favorite things about Hamner. I lived here for 3 months and frequently went walking or horseback riding in the forest. It's common that you'll find solitude here.

This took us 4 hrs (return). It is a very tall waterfall that you can walk right too, and has a small pool. The last 20 mins are quite interesting though. Rocky, steep and had me a little scared. I saw some older people going up with walking sticks and wondered how they would manage. We hadn't meant on such a long walk the first day but it was well worth it.

Mix of shade and sunny; narrow tracks, well formed tracks and logging roads. Pleasant mix of short and longer tracks.
Very easy access from the village
