Very very nice walk, bit of a dander on the road to get to the mountain.. Get yer coat on and go. Wouldnt recommend doing in trainers!! Some sections are peat /bog. Wish they had more public rights of way like it...

A very pleasant walk on a hazy summers day in July by myself and two friends. Nicely signposted and clear path so you really cant go wrong. Thanks to whoever makes this possible!
