Check your weather forecast before doing this trail! Very important because you'll be scaling rocks along the river and you don't want to be stuck. Some parts of the trail are quite challenging with big rocks to scale. Good grip footwear is essential. Very fun when it ends with the waterhole for a nice cool dip after your 3+ hours of hiking!

This walk is well worth the effort with the return trip along the gorge back to the beginning. The gorge adds a little more complexity but is worth the effort. It is rock hopping all the way but the pools offer a welcome relief. The round trip took a leisurely 3.5hrs. I would suggest taking lunch and making a day of it.
