Great little trail in good condition with nice sea and hill views. We recommend to come early, as trails can be quite busy later in the day.

Did this fabulous walk in an anticlockwise direction, conditions were perfect , slightly chilly but not too cold, however, once at the summit it was cold with a strong breeze. very clear views in all directions. First time in 40 years I had been up here, why oh why did I leave it so long? It was very busy today, mainly because of society's position in troubled times, everyone was very polite, giving space where needed. A lo of respect for a fabulous walk.
