A great way to see both sides of the valley, with the unique memorial plaques on opposite sides of the valley. A great walk for the fit.* This walk passes through very remote areas and sections have no visible track. At least one person in your group should have training and experience in off track walking and navigation. Even with these notes and a GPS these extra skills and equipment are required.
