Great trail. Technical areas, scrambles, steep parts and log bridges. Definitely need gps or the AllTrails map if you are filling the loop. Not very well marked trails in some areas which caused a bit of backtracking for me. Would defiantly do it again

Dog friendly, but I would definitely say it’s hard rather than moderate. Quite a few ropes to climb up and down. Waterfalls were plentiful, after a rope climb down to them of course! View of Brennan Lake was stunning.

long trail, lots of Deep gorges, but amazing waterfalls, streams, amazing places to see. it is def a hard trail but if your prepared it's fun. just watch for the flagging as you go, it's easy to get off trail in spots and hike up a gorge before realizing it ;p

Our favourite hike yet since moving to the island. The creek at the bottom of the valley is so worth climbing down to. Plus Ammonite Falls is close by. Very quiet trail. Not maintained at all.

beautiful trail, could see falls. there was a lot of trees down across the trail in some spots from the winter storm which meant we got pretty muddy and had to do some scrambling so just be prepared. there are many steep sections and there are spots with ropes to help ascend or descend. might be worth it to bring some though for some challenging spots without. took about 3.5 hours for our group of approx 15ppl with varying speeds. worth a repeat.
