We had a lovely walk in the fog and rain with our dog (on a lead as there are vertical drops). It is quite steep and slippery when wet also worth noting that there was a rock slide that made it a tricky scramble (dog...More

It took us about three hours from the car park just off the main road - although we spent a lot of time taking pictures. Lovely relaxing walk, good views.

This is a scenic and moderately difficult hike to a hidden (lost) valley. There are numerous small waterfalls along the way, and the valley itself, when you finally get there, is quite scenic. For the most part, the trail is reasonably evident, and it is...More

This is a hike, there’s a path to follow and it’s about 300m of elevation gain, it’s only about 2km to the valley. Could be slippy when wet. For the love of god make sure you go left when you come to a river just...More

Not at all too difficult, my parents (65+) both easily hiked it. Absolutely stunning, even in pouring rain. Was fun to cross the river although cold AF!

Thoroughly enjoyed this walk up to the hidden valley. It’s definitely worth the hike up through the gorge- it takes about 45 mins to an hour each way. A short, but dramatic hike. Some parts are quite scrambly, so be prepared with footwear (hiking boots)....More

Well worth a short hike in any weather. We walked in torrential rain and could still see the beauty of this magnificent place. The hike is easy for those who walk regularly, there is a decent path which takes you to the heart of the...More

I would recommend this hike. Few areas needing scrambling. But there was good foot traffic, which always makes me feel safer! Gorgeous views!!

About an hour each way. The route is easy to follow. Although I wouldn't say it was well marked out, you'd struggle to get lost.
