Awesome must do trail. It is a little tricky to follow at times, as markers a few. Having said that, it is definitely possible to follow it, and found the AllTrails map very useful to ensure we were in the right track. Done streams to cross, and done very slippery areas, so be very careful if doing it during a rain, or just after. The needle is a bit scary if you are not a hiker used to doing any kind of hairy stuff (like us). They have chains and ropes to use, but don’t feel you have to do it to make the walk. We decided the scariness of the ropes and chains was possibly not worth the increase of view....as you can get a pretty good view anyhow. Such a beautiful perspective on the Island. We went north to south. We caught a bus to the town, the driver indicated which road we needed to walk up to start the trail, and off we went. We walked back to our accommodation at the other end. Road and beach walking at either end added an extra 6kms...so be prepared for the extra if you want to do it that way. All in all, loved the walk and the streams and the slippery slopes and the views!!!
