A great Trail any time of year. Around Sugarloaf Hill can be a bit treacherous in wet weather with a steep drop on the north-east side.

it was beautiful!!!

Had a great walk today. Amazing breeze and not over crowded.

Wouldn't say this trail is 'easy' all the way. some sections were very narrow and steep at times. Terrain was uneven occasionally too. Lots of intersecting tracks. had to keep looking at my phone to make sure I was on the right one but still managed to lose it a couple of times. Dam is cool, wish I had more time to explore. Nice walk.

We highly recommend this trail, at the beginning it seems like a random walk in the nature, but as we reached the creek it was really amazing. You should also try the swing. Overall a nice hike, which isn't too crowded on nice days.

We walked clockwise to the waterfall and back. With an 8 and 10 yr old. Steep but worth it. Saw our first snake on the way out.

I wouldn't call this hike 'moderate'. Compared to a lot of hikes I have completed, this is hard. The quite narrow walk up towards the waterfall is overgrown, has a few inclines, and a lot of rocky path. The upper part of the walk had three of us, close to 'rock climbing', on reasonably steep waterfall rocks. Quite slippery in parts. This is not a trail that I will use frequently, due to lack of maintenance and steep rocky incline, for quite a way.

trail was easy. saw a clumsy emu, a brown snake and a skink

Very scenic and great hike. Would rate it as moderate as it has very steep areas. Has some river crossings which can be crossed after rainfall, however your shoes will get wet. Avoided the areas that had a hazard warning on the maps at the carparks by looping back to the start via the Marri trail

I would happily recommend this to anyone wanting to escape the suburbs who’s short on travel time. Within 5-10 mins of crossing the railway track (takes 20-30 mins to get there) you could be in certain sections of the Flinders Ranges (thinking Warren’s Gorge between Melrose and Quorn area). Autumn-Spring you get the benefit of walking along the stream that you need to cross several times. Rocky and slippery in certain sections, but we’ve done it several times with the dog and no problems. However winter obviously does deliver more water. I love this walk.

You can have amazing views and a bit challenging walking at this trail. The most adventurous part was climbing upward along the dry waterfall path, steep and rocky. Suggest that starts the trail earlier just incase gets lost in the forest.

Great trail, lot of nice views and wildlife (birds and koalas.

Enjoyably walked along the river with great views and water flowing sound. Keeping up to the top of the mountain to enjoy the wide range of plains and views. Several different trails, mainly is walking on the River Trail, linking together to form this fabulous trail. Start with G12 (with car park area) and past several different Gate 9,11,...

Well maintained trail head, moderate foot traffic but so many options in trails that once you get moving ppl become more scarce. Awesome photo shots especially if you take small detours off the trail. Pack a lunch and a blanket because there are so many spots that you can have a great lunch date with some one special.
