This truly is an epic walk! We parked down at the bottom as we were worried about the steep hill and didn't know there was a huge free car park at the top. So we'll definitely park at the top next time.
The views are spectacular! And there are loads of hidden surprises that I won't spoil but wow! Some bits are definitely not for the faint hearted.
As far as it being a loop, that is more difficult as the paths to come down the other side is not at all clear. We lost battery all of a sudden on the phone (at 40% so weird) so unfortunately the app was no help either. We ended up picking our way through the rough and even climbed down a stream but it was all good fun. We actually found the path at the bottom so next time we'll start that way and see where it joins the top. The path the other side is huge and unmissable.
