Walking the Wood Line can distort one's view of reality. Here the forest appears to lean, and if resisting the curve of the Wood Line.

Step inside the dark forest, and the wood line first appears to curve in the distance. Give your eyes a moment to adjust and step further inside the forest.

Once fully inside and able to gaze downhill, the vast sweeping design of the Wood Line becomes visible. It forms series of long S-curves down the forest floor between stands of tall eucalyptus trees.

Up close, the Wood Line is composed of telephone pole sized logs, somehow made to curve.

People walked down the path formed by the Wood Line. They give the Wood Line scale to witness how truly huge it is.

Just Inside

Just inside the forest, a line of wood could be seen running along the forest floor. If you were not looking for it, that wood line would be easy to overlook while walking along the Lovers Lane trail just outside the forest.

A view from the bottom looking back at the Wood Line. One person used the Wood Line as a trail over which to walk a dog.

The end of the Wood Line at the bottom of its run, just vanished into the forest floor. Over this last bit of trail, just over the rise, one encountered a street and buildings.
