This is a well marked trail with occassional benches and numerous "kissing gates" along the way. It was dry the day we hiked it but much of the trail can be wet, even flooded, during the raining season. A lot of the trail is in the open so be sure to bring sun screen and drinking water. We enjoyed our hike and the curious cows watching us as we passed by.
