The Loop is closed for major alterations but Z Bend open and we loved it. We only did the walk to the lookout which was relatively easy although the legs felt the walk back up to the carpark. Highly recommend.

Had a great time, the views are stunning but definitely recommend the river walk. Worth the little effort going down to the river!

Loved it here! So much to see and do. Get exploring! But remember it's long and arduous and you need a backpack, a bit of food and lots of waster ( think 3litres per person)
