We hiked the east leg first with several stops for scenic lookouts and a ~1.5km detour up to Bach's Lookout (which was WELL WORTH the effort!) This made our overall hike 14.4 km from the Discovery Center.
I agree with a previous commenter that the east is the best way to begin. A little technical at first but you're nice and fresh, with a lovely gradual descent on return.
I loved the diversity of flora and geography we were treated to! What stunning landscapes. Trail was very well marked and despite a mega storm the night before, wasn't mushy at all. A surprising lack of bugs. Perfect hike!
