  • Overall its a good walk but not as much as I expected it to be. I had my expectations high as I was expecting it to be something of the level of Grand Canyon Walk. 60% of the walk is Grade 3 but the first 45 minutes and last 30 minutes are grade 4 or may be grade 5. You see good views at some spots. When you reach at the ruined castle mountains, its hard to stay there for more than 15 minutes especially if its hot weather because there is no shade there. I climbed to the highest point and the view is very very good there.
  • Easy to navigate, great views and lovely weather. Look out for yellow signposts if unsure (landslide part; be aware of the correct path). Recommend starting from Furber Steps (Scenic World) rather than Golden Stairs.
