  • Slightly overrated. There are bunkers and lookouts are good but there are so many good lookouts around that this does not match the others. Signage is less and beware there are lot of mosquitoes.So get your spray. I could not find any water holes. An average National Park.
  • Slightly off the beaten track easy access spray oneself with anti-bites bug's are hungry for tourists blood. 👹
