Dollar Glen was absolutely stunning, and a fairly easy walk, thanks to good maintenance. That being said, I certainly wouldn’t go during rainy weather. We went on a fairly dry day, and even then, it was a muddy experience. Standing on the lookout near the...More

Had a lovely walk and a good day on the hills. We had a lot of mist but it was great to get out for four hours. Met a lot of people who were lovely and friendly.

Stunning atmosphere, especially after it had been raining and autumn colours on tree were intensified. Lush green ferns and a torrent of water rushing down the gorge, very dramatic scenery. Unfortunately left my camera at home, only phone pics. Would definitely visit no matter what...More
