Along the river the position of the trail depends on the river height. There is some rock scrambling along the river. In places, fixed steel cables help you sidle around rocks. Unlikely to get wet feet unless the river level is high. 200m change in elevation, with a steep ascent at the beginning of the walk and a steep descent to the river. Walking poles are useful.
