When you drive along the beautiful coastal road of Cape Palliser, you can make a quick stop for a short hour and a half walk in the pinnacles. It will exercise your legs as walking on half soft terrain will require your full attention especially going down, particularly as a lot of rocks are falling down as well. Prepare to get your feet wet in winter as you walk along the river bed and the stream cam be bigger at that time of the year.
You can even find stranded trampers without any light after sunset, looking for their way to the car park. Yes it can be somewhat tricky to find your way across the stream when it has been raining and the stream got a bit bigger.
