A mixture of trails from flat, through hilly to ''Oh my god, that was steep". Most have great views of the island - just be aware it can be very hot, so lots of water needed. Usually well sign posted and very well maintained.

Great walking trails, geared to different levels of fitness. Scenery is brilliant. If you're fit enough do the Goat house Cave and Mt Gower climb although Mt Gower climb is only done with a guide and costs $100 for the full day...well worth it for...More

If you are mobile, make sure you walk as many trails as you can. Each one is different, and varying levels...views are stunning and the Bird life and vegetation is a must to see.

Had 2w visit there, hiked many trails; not including Mt Gower. Not crowded, generally easy footing, but some are steeper than others. Bring good footwear.

Boots would be best but unless climbing Gower or the Goat House. Sneakers would be fine.
