It was beautiful but wear bug spray if you decide to come here. Also there is a little bit of climbing rocks but it made it more fun. Maybe not good for kids.

Ridge/Trial camp loop, worth visiting. 70% of trial loop is shaded. Not advisable for kids. Go with proper shoes and enough water.

This hike is a little more challenging than I'm used to. It doesn't look as hard as it actually is. The uneven ground, rocks in awkward places, and change of scenery from forestry to mountainside cliffs was what made the hike a super unique experience. It's a longer hike than I'm used to as well but it's my favourite hike so far! We caught the cliffs at sunset and the view was just breathtaking! We camped out overnight in February and it was freeeeezing! I recommend waiting for warmer weather or packing extra thermal gear.

Best experience after the rains. Shaded for early and most part of the hike. Different rock formations and vegetation makes it further interesting. Views along the way keeps you engaged. Chain rails at two small sections to pass were great. Overall, a satisfying experience every time you hike here.
