HikingGreat!

I was hiking with my family on a weekend and we really had fun, amazing view and a lot to appreciate, lack of signage was the only problem.

First time on this trail. Very beautiful, easy to get lost at times - multiple paths splitting off. Trail is not well sign posted on the way down.

it was a good hike up but coming down the paths were not clear, you really need to know how to navigate your way down

WalkingGreat!

Great leisurely walk with the dogs. Quite busy but well worth it. Nice in the forest for a hot day. Keep an eye on the map but easy to find yourself if you go off the route.

First half was great, contour path is beautiful but the path (if you can call it that) back down is a nightmare...

Very good but some track are overgrown. You should be careful not to miss the track where it is very steep.
