Great hike with consistent incline but the view was well worth it! Took about 2.5 hrs

I took the old railway road to Vic Haun trail and to Temelpa trail up to the east peak. this route gains in elevation in small area.Nice workout with rewarding views of the bay. On the way back, I took the upper Fern trail back to old railway road. There is enough water flowing down and beautiful ferns growing on the banks of the streams to make the hike interesting
