  • Thoroughly enjoyed the walk. I think we completed about 15km round trip. This route mainly follows a stream that you walk in. Wear old trainers/wet shoes. Take some water and snacks.

  • Amazing. Most of the walk is in the river so old walking/trainers shoes. Take water and snacks as this can be a long walk. Scenery is incredible. We took dry shoes to change into after we finished...

  • Great walk up stream in natural park. You are walking through a river up stream so it's important to wear good footwear and probably bring something waterproof for your valuables in case you drop...

  • Perfect path in unique nature. Highly reccomended. Just make sure you have water and food. Also comfy shoes, which probably you will have to throw away after this trip. We tried water shoes - managable, but not recommended, felt all stones… No connection. As well no signs, just follow the river. Cars can be left in normal parking, then distance to path start ~15-20min. I saw some cars parked near the path start, not sure if it’s legal.
  • Wonderful adventure, it takes a good 3-4 Hours there, plan on going early morning as it takes the entire day, its wise to wear comfortable trainers, pack a lunch & plenty of water to drink. Wouldn't advise anyone to go if they are unfit or have medical issues as it bcomes rather dangerous at times climbing slippery boulders.
  • A fun and beautiful day out with the whole family! Its weird to walk with your shoes in the water at first but the view is amazing :) you gave to be careful and have a good balance. It can be dangerous but you can always turn around when you're done with the walk!
  • Do it! Take the route.
  • For 5s and under 1. Wear solid running shoes/ trainers/ sneakers or good Tevas. Not river shoes which do not have sufficiently thick soles and you will have insufficient grip and sore feet 2. Drive till come to metal barrier then find nearest parking, cause the 'parking lots' are actually about half kilometer walk away 3. There are bamboo sticks near entrance but if have weak knees or ankles maybe bring your own hiking stick 4. Go in morning and expect, even with shortest walk, to spend about 4-5 hours 5. Carry at least a litre water for each person, 1.5 ltr if its hot; and food- fruit, sandwiches, cheese, chocolate, chips 6. Bring backpack with towel and change of shorts etc if you do not want to remain in wet clothes 7. If there is bad weather and especially heavy rain Do Not Go
