Fantastic walk, a few steep climbs up, down and around rocks. This is a must do if you are in the national park. Sign says 4 hours, it only took us 2 hours. Do take plenty of water though! There is a refill station on the track as well as the car park, so you can top up.

This is a spectacular walk. The only way to describe it is as a living artwork. The vistas change with every step taken. If you have the time take some lunch and enjoy this area for a whole day. The track is well marked but only for the sure footed. The bird life is a joy to listen to. Dont forget to look along the ground occasionally as the plant life and flowers although petite are a spectacular show. Enjoy!

Great views and easy enough to navigate. Plenty of visitors to the Park and everyone was clean and aware of the environment and it's history, it seemed. Careful with the loose rocks along the trails especially with the steep portions but if you're careful and take your time, you get lovely views rewarding you at each turn. We were fortunate to arrive there the week after the torrential rains so the dessert was green and in bloom.

I only made it to the first lookout as the rest of the trail closes at 11AM due to heat and sun exposure. You do get a great view of Kata Tjuṯa from the short walk to the first lookout!
