A beautiful hike - our 6 and 10 year olds did this comfortably. Plenty of spots to take in the view and gorgeous flora. Some of the ascending track has been a bit washed out with the winter rains and a few of the markers are quite faded but otherwise well kept and well marked.

It was a very well made trail, with a great landscape and not too steep inclines or declines, towards the end of the trail though where it joins a larger track there are 2 blue markers pointing in different directions but follow the left one

Great little walk. The track is well thought out with a great mix of vegetation types and topography making it really enjoyable. We did the walk in July with some 3-5yr old kids who enjoyed it as well.

Get out there and check it out for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!
