Bloody steep, I started running and that didn’t last long🤣
Then I was puffed the rest of the way walking. Should have know. By the name of the trail!!! Good workout on the calves.

Very steep. Go down, not up!

Only went upwards, very steep incline the entire way, a great challenge.

Agree with the previous comments. I wouldn't rate this track as hard apart from the steep uphill section. This section has lots of loose rock so good boots/ shoes are a must. Walking poles are an advantage. Gave me a good workout as I started the walk mid morning. Whew! Bit hot😅

Took our time up - plenty of rests. Up in 30 minutes and back down in 15. It is quite steep, and solid shoes are a must.

Honestly, this should not be in the "hard" basket. Was a lovely walk, quite a pretty trail... However my heart rate wasn't really pushed and the view rewards you get from other walks were non existent. Pretty, but not worth a drive if you aren't close by.

Pree steep, not recommendable for people who consider themselves unfit, otherwise, very short.
