I recommend this walk, although you do have a choice at the start, will you choose the high road or the low road.. I went for the high, I figured that I would get any climbing out of the way first, I found the first half of the loop on the up and up track challenging and had to stop a few times. But beautiful, I was thinking all the time about those poor settlers who tried to farm that land and live there.
The second half on the way back was beyond magical, I didn’t see a soul the entire time, the track follows the river along and it pretty much flat with so much to see and hear.
If you are a beginner I would suggesting taking the low track there and back, that would be super doable.
Good luck and go for it!! Stephie

24Sept18. Nice stop on the way down the scenic road. Toilets ok. Interesting bridge and local history. We didn’t get far on the loop walk due to time but would like to do it sometime.

24Sept18. We only did a short bit of the walk. It looked to me like it would be a good walk. The stream was wade-able. The bridge story is interesting and somewhat sad. The picnic area is good and the long drop was clean enough

We had a great time. We stopped and swam in the river too.

Unexpected goodness up here. Nothing too spectacular, but quiet, un-spoilt and very little likelyhood of seeing another soul. Great river swimming spots abound!
