Super simple out and back hike between some large outcrops. Even on a cloudy, rainy day, it was spectacular to see.

Hiked this in June. It's a moderate hike straight up to the top of the Canyon, but after that, its a really easy hike.

The trail is difficult and hard be self sufficient for 3to5 days awesome country

This is a spectacular walk. The only way to describe it is as a living artwork. The vistas change with every step taken. If you have the time take some lunch and enjoy this area for a whole day. The track is well marked but only for the sure footed. The bird life is a joy to listen to. Dont forget to look along the ground occasionally as the plant life and flowers although petite are a spectacular show. Enjoy!

This route actually follows a now disused & overgrown track from Blythe Homestead to the base of the escarpment below Tolmer Falls. It is best to treat it as an off trail walk because very little of the original track remains. From the waypoint "Start Climb' the escarpment is climbed - there was never a track here, but this is the easiest & safest route to the top. From there it is a relatively easy hike over rock & scrub to the creek crossing above the waterfall. Once over the creek near the bench a maintained & popular track leads to the carpark.

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.

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!
