Tried section 4 from Standley Chasm but quit after about 2 km. The path runs along the water way which had too many puddles blocking the path. Best to try it during dry season. The part I tried was quite beautiful. The path is not very clearly defined and there aren't many signs. Also, spiders. Big ones with white bottoms. No idea if dangerous but I'd rather face a bear than a spider.
