Tried section 4 from Standley Chasm but quit after about 2 km. The path runs along the water way which had too many puddles blocking the path. Best to try it during dry season. The part I tried was quite beautiful. The path is not very clearly defined and there aren't many signs. Also, spiders. Big ones with white bottoms. No idea if dangerous but I'd rather face a bear than a spider.

$40 park entry fee? You can keep the park and the trail.

Great views and easy enough to navigate. Plenty of visitors to the Park and everyone was clean and aware of the environment and it's history, it seemed. Careful with the loose rocks along the trails especially with the steep portions but if you're careful and take your time, you get lovely views rewarding you at each turn. We were fortunate to arrive there the week after the torrential rains so the dessert was green and in bloom.

You can't come to Uluru and not do this trail. It's marked at the Uluru Base Trail and closes in hot temperatures. Definitely recommend giving yourself at least 3 hours (even for the fit!) and finishing before 11am when the temperature increases.

I only made it to the first lookout as the rest of the trail closes at 11AM due to heat and sun exposure. You do get a great view of Kata Tjuṯa from the short walk to the first lookout!

I was surprised by the length and amazing views that this easy trek provided! Definitely easy for almost anyone and you get a true feel for the magnitude of Kata Tjuṯa. Highly recommend!
