The “Total Time” is my time in April which includes morning tea and lunch time. That day was fine and the tracks were good. (Unfortunately the Falls track was closed that day). If you slow down to average 3 km/h plus 60 min stop then the total time will be around 6:30 hrs. Will be longer if you visit the falls.
