There are some minor rock hopping sections that you can take at your own pace, and mostly just serve as stairs to higher ground. Depending on the recent rainfall there are also creeks that are very pretty (Source:  Bushwalk the Gong). Hazards: Unfenced cliffs. Sandstone rock can fracture and crumble without warning.
