Walks along the side of the mountain, path is called the precipice walk, but not particularly steep, and relatively safe to walk as long you don’t get crazy. Fantastic views towards the estuary. There are also some add on trails that take you to other sights such as a summit and an old mine. Plenty of parking with toilets too and the lake section can be done as a loop with next to no elevation.

This trail is one of my favourite, for a short and easy hike with a incredible view towards the Cader and estuary. Got to mind your footings at some areas, but generally quite an easy hike.

Stunning views and reasonably flat once you reach the precipice. Little muddy so tread carefully but absolutely gorgeous!
