Great hike, two sections are under construction and will get bridges in the coming months to assist in the water crossing. The Gapsa temple is a gorgeous and solemn place to pause in order to experience its beauty. Enjoy the waterfalls and quite woods on the way up.

Of note: up hill hiking is currently restricted from 0400-1700 which is not posted anywhere other than a few posters once you get 1/3 of the way up the Gapsa trail. Plan accordingly.

We completed this adventure with the whole family (included our two dogs). The hike is not long and is very easy to complete with only a 400 foot elevation gain to reach the small lookout peak. There are alternate routes listed on the map at the trailhead and it is possible to get to the beaches on the other side of the hill without going to the peak for an even easier stroll. Elephant rock is pretty cool to see and my kids enjoyed building rock towers with the large rounded rocks on the beach. The beach here is not sandy so don't expect to be able to lay out and sunbathe. Great experience and the adventure includes just finding the way here. We used GPS coordinates to reach the parking lot and enjoyed the ride. There is not very much information on this hike in English which just added to the adventure of it all. Great memories.

I completed this hike a couple of days ago with my two boys, ages 12 and 11. We completed the hike all the way to the peak which is about a 2000 ft elevation gain. The hike is difficult but very doable with a well marked and maintained trail the entire way. I would highly recommend this trail as it offers great diversity from forest to peaks and cultural temple sights along the way. We didn't have proper winter gear which made it a bit difficult and slippery near the top but by March it should be clear i would think.
