fine ascent through trees and great views over lake. can imagine it's pretty muddy after raining especially as some sections are quite steep. ridge line is a bit exposed and colder. summit is a trig station with okay views but nothing phenomenal. total time = 3.5 hours inc. stop at the top

Awesome hike, very challenging and steep, almost gave up around four times haha. The walk across the mountains at the top was 1000000% worth it though!

Great Trail that took us about 4h return. Should definitely have reasonable fitness and sturdy footwear on approach! Probably a good idea to wait for good weather as it was quite challenging for us due to the intense rain yesterday.

The track was chellangeing, one thing I know for sure after this hike. Be prepared, that includes semi stiff hiking boots, energy boosters and plenty of water should be taken with you and multiple layers of clothes. It was cold up there even the weather was really great by the lake. Otherwise, it was perfect to evaluate your own capabilities.

Only did half of this walk, good fun but is quite hard work on the way up. Good view points in the first few kms if you don’t want to do the whole walk.

We made this track up and down in 3,5 h. It's step in the beginning but when you get up to the mountains it's has a great view. When it's rainy it would be more difficult
