Rotkon kulkeminen päästä päähän kestää noin 2,5 tuntia ja saman verran takaisin. Tarvittaessa voimme myös tehdä lyhyemmän reitin, kävellä osan matkasta rotkoon ja kääntyä takaisin jo aikaisemmin. Vaelluksen päätyttyä palaamme Kissamokseen autolla.    Huom! Osallistumisen edellytyksenä on pystyä kävelemään noin 2 tuntia kivisessä maastossa.
