Very enjoyable. Tricky in places especially near waterfall where there were slippery rocks and path very close to edge of heights. Take care of children on this path.

Lovely trail. Great scenery and not vertical. some roads at some point but they're not too busy.

Nice spot, lovely area, the ruins of the old mill and the houses added to the walk.

The trail was not as we expected. The initial part is pretty and tree covered along a creek, but there is litter everywhere! There was no toilet or rubbish bins despite it being a popular destination, and there was used toilet paper and other trash all along the first part of the trail to the waterfall. After we passed the waterfall, we hiked to an area where all the trees were cut down and only stumps remained. The second half of the trail was a dirt road lined with dead trees and stumps from the clear cutting. I would not recommend this trail!!!

The first half of the hike was ok, but the second half was on a paved road. The trail signs made no sense and there were biting flies.

Stunning views from the top of the Ridge of Capard, the boardwalk makes the walk so much easier on our decent we took the trial down to Glenbarrow waterfall. Approximately a 10km loop in total. We met no one along the route so it’s really peaceful and quiet

A great place to run off-road if training for an endurance event with dodgy knees! Can be prone to flooding after heavy rain but when dry it's an amazing trail
