Veiled by the passing of time is this hike, we begin our journey on an old farmer’s dirt road on undulating terrain (gradual up and down) through a timeless pine forest. Here we meet the eminent soapy hill, this hill is a collection of slippery smooth stones thus the name soapy hill. Hikers are asked to walk with extreme cau- tion at this juncture of the hike, after we cross the soapy hill we continue until we meet the Matura River. Here we fasten our life jackets and begin our journey down river through an accumula- tion of gorges, where we walk, jump and swim through gorge, upon gorge, upon gorge, until we arrive at Matura Basin better known as Mermaid Pools. If you have a life jacket please walk with yours.
