Easy trail up a crater rim. Cool views from the top. A lot of wind. Not a difficult hike but a nice stretch of the legs to knock out in 90 minutes

Didn’t make the top— made it past the first ropes and then a little further. Minor panic attack given how steep the drop is. That’s unusual for me, but this is a bada$$ hike. Worth attempting. My husband made it to the top! I was worried about coming down but it was easier than the up. We were lucky with sunny weather although a lot of wind. I wouldn’t try it if raining. The wind was a factor.

Awesome trail. Not easy uphills but worth the views. 11 on a 10 scale.

Busy trail but worth it to get to the hot pools.

Difficult trail. We turned around approx 600m from the top. It looked to be very steep rock with no ropes in sight. Views were amazing but use caution when down climbing since a fall could be extremely dangerous.

We walked the trail today to the top. Weather conditions were really good though, no wind and a good view. Only started to rain a bit in the way down. definitely worth the view!! Wouldn't recommend the climb while it's raining.

To the ropes is a nice hike/scramble. Did not make it past ropes. will have to re attempt another year. As others have said, don't attempt in high winds or rain. Lots of exposure. Hella fun though.

Hiked this in June. The views were lovely, the weather was not too hot, and the hot spring river was a delight and not too crowded early in the morning. The steepest parts were in the first half and after that it was fairly level. There are horse tours on this trail so watch your step and do stay out of the way since they do come plowing through and can catch your at a bad place coming around a sharp bend/blind spot.

This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful if not the most beautiful hike I have ever done. The most scenic views throughout the entire hike. Did the trail 3-5 sept with 2 nights in huts. Day 1: 12k, day 2: 28k, day 3: 15k. The trail is well marked and overall of moderate difficulty. If you use this app to check if you are still going the right way you will be fine (also works in flight mode). Weather conditions can change quickly, so come prepared. Water shoes or sandals are a must since you have to cross about 4 rivers, varying from ankle to knee deep. Good luck!
