Park at the famine house or any other small attraction.

Walk down Slea drive (2-3 miles) until you get past the sheer rock face pass, then follow tiny yellow hiker sign up into the pasture.

You’ll go over a step ladder and continue along the rock wall. There’s another ladder after the steep climb with a pile of stacked rocks overlooking the bay.

There are occasional signs but not very clear, at the end you’ll go through a few residential homes and get back onto Slea drive/return to car.

Great views once you get up into the pastures. Takes about 3:45 and about 7 miles if you stop at any beehive, ancient sites.
