I found this Trail a bit tougher than I’m able to reasonably do but for anyone who can handle it better than I it was a really neat trail. I did find it unpleasant with the amount of mosquitoes near the river section but it was interesting to see so many newts. A lot of interesting botanical species especially wild flowers when I went. I was hoping for more views from some of the climbs but those present were nice. The waterfalls were very good and worth seeing.
