Acid from our hands can stain and damage these mighty redwoods. Impressively, the Treewalk has been designed to be access-friendly, though specially built prams have to be used. The Treewalk begins with a helix ramp that spirals up to 6 metres and the first of the bridges that stretch between the redwoods.
This helix is wheelchair accessible but the rest of the Treewalk is not. Our first steps out onto the walkways are unsteady — the bridges move and wobble, though they feel safe. It takes a moment to get used to the motion and sensation of walking high above the ground.
The lady and the bandit
Specially designed slings wrap around the trunks that can be adjusted as each tree grows. In , the higher platform and metres of walkways opened. Here you can climb up to 20 metres above the ground. There are also glass panels in the floor of this platform where you can peer down at the ground far below.
Being this high and so close to such giants has the unique effect of making you feel tiny and towering at the same time. During the day, the forest is beautiful.

From the platforms high in the trees, looking out across the wooded landscape is peaceful and relaxing. But at night, things happen in the redwood forest that makes being here after dark a mysterious and wonderful thing. At dusk, hiding amongst the branches of the redwoods, 30 giant lanterns light up giving the forest and eerie yet beautiful glow.
The lanterns are works of art in themselves, designed by artist and architect David Trubridge and are up to 2. Some are like UFOs, others are more lantern-like, but all have an ethereal glow to the forest. During the day, you get a wonderful perspective of the trees, their majesty and height.

However, when night falls and the lights shine out from the trees, the forest takes on a magical consciousness and brings a completely new dimension to the experience. This means you can see the forest in both its daylight and night time state.
