This is a lovely valley with a number of possible walks. It is quite diverse offering a range of different environments. Walking is within the ability of most people who are accustomed to country strolls

Most amazing river. Every spot is crystal clear and magnificent. Fantastic on a hot day. Flows along most of the walking routes, Pr2 as well as Pr1. Otherwise drive to the junction as said in previous reviews !
