Definitely for the more fit and energetic but so worth it. Wear good shoes and bring water, go to the right first as then you get to view the ocean as you head back

This is certainly a level 4 hiking trail. Rough underfoot walking on dry creek bed of round pebbles/stones. Some very steep ascent and descent. But view from the top is beautiful. For the fit it would take 1 hour.

A 3km walking trail allows access into this dry gorge that should only be walked in the cooler months of the year between April and November.
