There are a few different routes to take, but all are well signed and colour coordinated, I run on my own up there, never have I had an issue with getting lost, it is very clear and easy to follow, you do run very close to the cliff edge but again it is all clearly marked out.
There are currently no members to show for this trail.

There are water fountains around the area
Could become very muddy in places and slippy on the steps and boardwalks after down pours
You do have to take care, its very distracting because its so beautiful, but you have to stay focused lots of tree routes out to get you, some low lying branches that could cause a bit of damage, lots of steps and board walks that could become slippy, some tough down hills but there are some bloody good down hills to that are great fun, I did also appreciate that I had my good trail shoes on, so I wouldn't advise road shoes
