  • Always love this walk, No matter how many times I do it it's always challenging and makes you want more. My 5year old enjoys going up too.
  • absolutely gorgeous views, well earned by enduring a mostly verticle hike up. Path is well kept, and it's pretty much stairs the whole way. Path is shared by those travelling up and down, so be curtious to those trying to pass as it can get busy.
  • Fantastic. Love the challenge Ian 72yrs old and still beat the steps. Feels good.
  • An awesome hike, approx 1300 steps to the summit. The first section of the track as far as the waterfall is suitable for the unfit and has heaps of glow worms at night.
  • Not for the faint-hearted lots of stairs great views wonderful scenery.
