  • Excellent experience!!! Well informed Guide, everyone was so friendly and helpful. Views from the short hike is absolutely stunning and beautiful. Really nice to see the efforts in restoring the plants and reserve. Lunch was really good and far better than expected. We will definitely be returning.
  • Still just as beautiful as when I visited as a child, newly built structures due to the 2015 fires look awesome and welcoming. Breathtaking views. Weather wasn't great during the hike but still thoroughly enjoyed it!
