“Great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

Plan for a few hours, its a long walk to the top. Fabulous view from the cliff, we are going again this spring/summer. Don't go on a very hot day, and bring water and a trekking pole if you have one.

“Quite a hike with a great reward!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

This is NOT a hike for small children, this is a SERIOUS adventure..bring LOTS of water, and leave early in the day. Do not venture out there late afternoon as you wont make it back by dark.

“beautiful bit of nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

to really enjoy you should be in shape and take some food and water. Great if you like getting off beat and path, plan to stay at an inn and take in a winery

“Awe inspiring place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

This is an amazing hike. The views are spectacular, the shoe tree is neat, and watching the tides rip off the split are amazing (they are the highest tides in the world!)... be careful of the edges and make sure that you bring lots of water to drink... not much on the split to renew your water bottles.
