Trail is in great condition. Most boggy areas have dried up. Approach to Loch Avon is not very suitable to cycle. Our descent off Ben Mc Dui followed a very steep course which crossed numerous bolder fields and was off trail until the valley floor. Possibly unsuitable for dogs or people unsure of foot. Overall an excellent walk. In summer there is no shade so take appropriate care. Lots of wildlife to be spotted en route.
