Perfect short hike into the Nevis gorge. A nice rock path all the way, passing many waterfalls with a truly breathtaking opening into an expansive valley featuring the big falls at the end.

HikingBugsGreat!Rocky

Great trail one of my favourites. Took a 7 & 5yr old on it who aren't used to hiking and they managed just fine. It is a fairly narrow path, mainly biggish rocks so uneven but made it a lot of fun. Definitely can't take a buggy and i personally wouldn't be happy with a front carrier as you really want to see where your feet are going. It does cross a number of v small streams and waterfalls. Most are a tiny gap, a couple are a bit more of a scramble but nothing major. Good footwear definitely helps as the path was wet when we did it with a few unavoidable puddles. Also smidge and a net as in places the midges were particularly terrible when we went.

This is a great trial to walk, but DO NOT attempt it on a bike, it’s not possible!

it was an easy, not very steep. lots of good views including the waterfall. some river crossing on the rope bridge of 20m long is required to get close to the waterfall.

Great hike! Beautiful hike along a stream, very rocky, would recommend good hiking shoes/boots for better stability.

This was a spectacular trail. The hike up to the valley was relatively easy with just a little crawling in parts. But the walk through the valley was breathtaking. One of my all time favorite hikes.

Not a difficult one, good for a whole family and the waterfall makes it well worth the effort. We walked it on bank holiday Sunday and it got a bit busy.
