This walk was pretty much as described in WH but there was better walking under foot as there has been no rain here for a long time, but still bouncy, squelchy and wet under foot but I avoided all the worst parts with ease. Really hot and humid climbing up to the falls with lots of bugs and bracken wet so glad to get to the top and the walk in to cool down, dry off and walk bug free. No one else around, managed to keep on track all the way to the top and back. Long views from the top, but not very interesting walk for most of the distance.
