Overview

The route is undulating with a mixture of terrain underfoot and good views. A road closure has resulted in a change to the planned route but unfortunately the diversion is pretty muddy so walking poles are recommended.

There are 23 stiles.  There are no toilets but there is a shop near the start which sells sandwiches etc..
