Wouldn’t do it after a rainfall, it’s quite dangerous as it is!
It is closed but you can access it.

Awesome hike up the hill. The rocks make sure you’re paying attention. Solid views.

Recommend starting counterclockwise as the footing is better for the down hill portion. Hiking poles a good idea also.

A good relatively short but steep trail. Takes about 1 hour and 40 mins - 2 hours to get up. The hut is awesome, one of the best I've seen in terms of size and kept in good condition.

This trail is truly amazing, described as a "Nature Photographers Dream" it definitely does not disappoint. Its features a Ski Lodge, a waterfall and stunning 360 views of snow capped peaks. Don't be fooled by thinking this is easy because its only 4.5km there and back, its very steep and you'll be walking on stones most of the way. Takes roughly 1 and a half - 2 hours each way at a steady pace.

Pretty fast and relatively easy with great views from the cave and a nice seating area to sit back and relax.

This ones quite a challenge but well worth it for the 360 views of the lakes and mountains. Not much shelter on the way up and can get pretty windy, take a windbreaker jacket for sure! Well worth it
