Shortish but interesting walk up to a viewpoint. Valley of the Gales more like so parts of the way in weren't too pleasant for walking. Probably only worth the trip if combined with a sunrise/sunset trip.

I did the full circuit and it took about 3 hours. Best to do it in the morning before the weather gets really hot. Be aware of the closure time due to high temperature. Generally, if you start your walk before 10am, you'll be fine....More

Amazing geology and scenery. Take snacks for your breaks and enjoy the view! Do the 2nd half if you have the time as it's very different, flatter, looking into the rocks from different angles and onto the landscape around.

Just go. Even if can't walk very far, just sit on the mountainside and breathe it all in. Absolutely humbling and uplifting. Teen daughter loved it too.

Because this walk is slightly more difficult, there are only a few walkers. The trail is well marked and ends on top of a pass, between two hills overlooking a valley. At 3/4 of the track and a junction there is a tank with drinking...More
