Compared to some of the epic trails in the area, this is not that amazing. However it's a lovely little circuit that provides nice views. The trail climbs gradually to the midway point and descends in a similar manner. The river is cool and surrounded...More
Good undulating short hike that took us - two fit mid 50 year olds, 1.50 hours. We preferred to tackle the loop clockwise, passing Sam's hut first as we'd rather walk the steeper sections on the incline rather the decline.
