A very secluded retreat, which unfortunately means that there is limited vehicular access. Cars should be parked beside the Scarborough pool as there is no parking or easy drop off access. After you have parked, there is a ten minute uphill walk from the Scarborough pool, and then a short walk up a steep uneven zigzag path that is not wheelchair friendly.
