This walk is still closed. There is a huge tree down over a switchback on the second half of the hike, after the meeting of the waters. It is very easy to cut through the paths to avoid that tree. A second tree is down also in the second half towards the top. Easy to pass on the lower trail but the higher track where the tree was uprooted is a different story. It is definitely passable but unstable and will take them a while to repair it. There were a lot of people still on the trail even a family with their younger primary school aged children. They did seem like seasoned hikers however and the mother mentioned hiking the trail a week prior. Unfortunate that the trail will be closed for a little while longer for public safety but it is actually doable.
Heaps of active waterfalls because of the recent rains. The track is very slushy in some parts. Heaps of leeches, but they don't eat much 😉. There are a bunch of river crossings too so be prepared for wet feet! All in all a great hike which will challenge the intermediate hikers. We were passed by some fitness fanatics who completed the trail in 2 hours. It took us 5 hours with a small lunch break in the middle.
