A fantastic trek! Anti-clockwise is much better the climbing and narrow paths were a lot of fun and a hard start with soft end. Great during spring!

Excellent trail with very steep hiking through a waterfall. Moderate to hard.

great track, loved the rocky bits that required climbing/careful trekking, added fun variety. can be slippery at times. enjoyable scenery, lots of wildlife. however, i would rate it as a hard track due to the numerous steep areas & rock clambering & climbing. definitely not a moderate hike

We loved this trail. Great family hike. Took our group 3 hours including a 9, 11 and 13 year old. Definitely go anti-clockwise around the loop so you climb back up the gully rather than down it.

Beautiful easy walk through the forestry. Great views of the greater Adelaide at the start and beautiful views of the valley.

Lots of fun in this trail, enjoyable then you come to the bottom of the hill and up you go for very challenging walk up, great workout and lovely scenery

the rock climbing part caught by surprise. anticlock is the best way to finish it as climbing done from that waterfall is not recommended. but very nice trail.

new favourite trail! I'd say its more hard than moderate, we went the way that meant we climbed down the waterfall instead of up, but keen to do the opposite way next time!

We were walking with the ARPA bushwalking group so there were plenty of breaks and an easy place, and one person had a fall so the walk could have been done much quicker if you're young and fit. But this is a challenging walk, rocky uphill particularly at the start, and some slippery bits down hill. The walk leader had designed a walk that avoids fire trails, so mainly single track right in the bush. Magnificent views to the north and west.

This trail would probably need to be reclassified as hard. I went down that super steep hill of loose rocks. Definitely made for a challenging way down. I did loose the track and decided to cut it short - which means I also went the same way back up. Tiring but a lot more accessible that way. Still a great hike very close to Adelaide.

You can have amazing views and a bit challenging walking at this trail. The most adventurous part was climbing upward along the dry waterfall path, steep and rocky. Suggest that starts the trail earlier just incase gets lost in the forest.

This trail took about 2.5 hours to complete and had a steep, very rocky climb in one section. I wouldn’t rate this section easy. Parts of the track in the gully are becoming overgrown with spiky berries so wear pants.

Lots of blackberries in places (Summer) but very lush bushland makes for an enjoyable walk.
