Good to get the heart racing, thats for sure. The top of the ridge was nice with good views on a clear day, but the entire 3.5km uphill walk up you spend looking at your feet because it’s rocky stairs the whole way up, along the ridge you’re rock climbing, so again looking at your hands and feet, and then on the descend, yet again just looking at your feet because it’s pretty steep down. Overall I didn’t see much except my feet - my only real criticism of the hike It was nice to do, but tough

Challenging route. Scrambling , uneven surface for the whole ridge line, but incredible views. Take the cave route up to sugarloaf and it takes you through an incredible cave. We missed out little cathedral and took the gully route down to the river. 6-8 hour walk!

very challenging walk in parts and had to take different routes as didn't have the rock climbing skills to get over sugarloaf peak. with a short detour though we still managed to walk along the mountain top where the views were spectacular

Great workout hike. Views of the farmland are nice. The ridge portion requires the ability to be light on your feet after climbing 1000 meters.
