Two options for hiking, one is 30 minutes return to see the caves and the other is 1 hour 30 minutes return just a loop through the woods. A man was hunting there with his dogs, other than that we were alone. It's a steep incline and parts of the trail had fallen trees from a mudslide. Do not go if it's raining!! Very slippery and steep. Beautiful natural forest and peeking views to the gorge but not what we expected. A great workout, the views are okay, and not a very safe trek in wet weather. Maybe on a sunny day it's more rewarding.
