Fantastic trail! Well marked. It took us roughly 3,5h to get up, 2 to get down. There is a lot of climbing involved, be prepared. It was cloudy when we reached the peak, so we couldn't see a thing. You can sleep in the hut on top, there's even a chimney for colder season. We heard there's another track down, if you are not into going down the same way.

Great spot, only a short 15-20min walk. The track/carpark are getting a big upgrade this year, the track will soon have two more swingbridges and become an optional hour long loop in addition to the current track.

Well worth the trip if you're fairly fit, the views are stunning and the hut at the top is well maintained by volunteers. Approx 3.5 hours up from the western side. There's another track up/down on the east/southeast side near the main road.

Super quick trail though watch out for the bugs at the end! No need for hiking gear. All in all about 20 Minutes back and forth not including time taken for photos!!

We made this track up and down in 3,5 h. It's step in the beginning but when you get up to the mountains it's has a great view. When it's rainy it would be more difficult
