trail running
15 minutes ago

Just did the trail today - with numerous 15-30 second breaks and a fairly slow but steady pace, it took me an hour up from the entrance area.

The surrounding forest is very beautiful, but this definitely isn't a scenic hike. The trail is very well marked but on the rougher side with plenty of exposed roots and rocks. It's basically all uphill for the majority of the trail.

Things do level off a bit once you're about 1km away from the peak, but you probably won't notice as you'll still be exhausted from the hike up to this point. Worth checking out if you're wanting a strenuous cardio workout in a calmer and more natural setting
