This area is sunk a bit lower than the surrounding trail. It tends to stay wet longer than other areas and generally is pretty humid. However, the routes are a bit easier and it makes a good warm-up area.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail for a while, and look for a break in the trees on the right that leads to a descending staircase.
