Problem is,that the middle part of the canyon is closed for renovation.We hiked down one part of canyon,came up walked across the mountains and hiked the other side.I wished we could hike it all the way

Most beautiful, yet I was frozen with fear of height at a few points on the descent down the canyon.....it was a very challenging climb for me, not just physically but mentally too as I needed to overcome the fear of height!

Well worth it. BUT you can't get around the whole trail at the moment, as the trail is blocked at the bottom of the canyon where they are embarking on lots of works (you can see cranes and all sorts of things down there). We didn't realise this and intended to do the whole trail...the front desk guy at our hotel didn't even mention it to us that the trail was closed halfway...when we told him we were going to do the whole trail....thanks. So got just about all the way down and then a group of Chinese (who were heading back up) told us you couldn't get all the way around as it was blocked. Very disheartening. he he he. Had to walk up the same way we came now....and then because we couldn't get over to the other side of the Canyon doing the circular walk, we had to walk back up to Bight Summit - a good 1 hour slog, and then missed all the sights on the other side of the canyon as didn't have time left to go back around and do them. Nevermind. Still fantastic.
