Route/Trail notes

This is a circuit track that can be walked in either direction, however anti-clockwise seems to be the more common recommendation. The track is steep in places with scrabmbling along the river section, but it is suitable for fit kids. There is a handrail for one section of the walk which is on a narrow sloping section above the river.

This track may become impassable after heavy rain.

A very beautiful circuit! Went a few days after rain and it was very green! We went anti-clockwise and I would definitely recommend this direction as the descent into the gorge was breathtaking! Would definitely love to do this again soon!

Lovely 26oC day.
We walked clockwise. Recommend counter-clockwise for less fit people as the big hill would then be right at the start.
Not a very shady walk so wear long sleeves. Take a decent amount of water.
