Wonderful walking, amazing views, teeming with wildlife. Only thing I would change is I would add a handful more signposts at the intersections of some paths, but really it was reasonably easy to find the way, paths were in good condition.

I've been 4 times now and love the place. There are so many trails for riders of all abilities. It will be such a shame when the freeride parks goes to make way for forest lodges though :(
