The Suicide Creek Trail is a perfect hike for families and beginners because it is well-marked and the picnic area and bridges provide an enjoyable hiking experience.
The beginning of the trail is characterized by beautiful trees covered with moss. Even though the Suicide Creek Trail is a flat area, watch your feet as tree roots are very prominent. There are two fabulous bridges to cross – Four Roads Bridge and Koleszar Krossing. The rocky area bellow is a beautiful spot and it is located a few metres down after the Fern Falls. (around half way through the hike).
