Really great trail. Better known as Balcony Trail (maybe change the name?). Well maintained, lots of clear markings, good path. Trail ends at a deserted village, do yourself a favour and continue to the lovely lake: go to the terraces (cross a mossy stream - watch out for slippery stones) and follow the cairns up to higher ground. Trail moves to the left and ends after 5 minutes at a beautiful lake underneath a rocky overhang. Great place for a picnic! Route was reasonably busy in February. Will be very hot in Summer.
