 The hikes traverse through indigenous forests classified as wet, medium moist and dry High Forest.  Four routes have been laid out and been colour-coded with yellow (8.09km), red (7.78km) and green (5.09km) footprints giving a choice of walking distances.  The routes start at the Stormsriver Adventure Centre in the Storms River Village.  On the yellow route you can have a picnic and swim in the Storms River at the Old Bridge picnic site.  The hikes are relatively easy and an average of 3km/h can indicate the time needed to complete the various routes.
