Great walk and stunning views

Moderate hike to top of mountain with a some scenic views. I would say the journey was far more interesting than end view. Full of tall trees with many boulders. Initial assend is a bit challenging. Once you reach community area it's much easier to go further

Excellent hike up the mountain, several lookouts to explore. Quiet and a good escape

When the sign says steep hike, it's a steep hike! Moderate level of fitness required, and have sturdy footing as the track is slippery with loose pebbles. The tree carvings are amazing, and there's a bat cave on the right just after the junction between lookouts on the main track. Hold your breath, though, as it stinks! Beautiful walk, would love to do again when the orchids are out.
