“Enjoy the diversity...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Enjoy the Horton Plains...Worlds end is a breathtaking view. There are conflicting views on whether it's best with clouds or without. When you don't get the clouds or the mist, you get to see right down on the valley. However, when the mist is around, with a cold breeze, you actually get the feeling that you are at the worlds end.. you see nothing beyond, except clouds, it's awesomely scary. For me that's the best view.

However, the trail is not about the worlds end view. You need to enjoy the natural bio diversity that the Horton Plains offers on this trail. There are two trails to get to Worlds end from the entrance - use both!. My recommendation is to go down the bakers fall's pathway, go all the way to the worlds end point, and come back on the other trail. With sleepy blue lakes and waterways, the lovely bakers waterfall, the lush green plains. Walk slowly, taking in the natural beauty. Don't rush, take your time, sit down on the plains and enjoy the cool breeze,...

“Nothing special when the cloud comes down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Nice, but challenging, hike through the national park however it was a very cloudy day so not much to see. We were unlucky and could see nothing at worlds end, which is the main attraction.

“Easy walk with great views along”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

As all the guides say, get there early. If possible, go there in a group as there is a per group service charge and it works out cheaper. Its an easy walk anybody can do it. The view was amazing.
