Car park is £2 on the trail side of the road. Did anti-clockwise per the suggestion here. I thought there were better views on the first have when done this way. But pretty good all around, it's more of a steep mountain climb/descent on the second half. Definitely worth the whole round trip. Fairly easy to follow the path, just need to know when it splits.

Fantastic views all the way round, this is one of my favourite walks but is very exposed if you get caught in rain. I’d recommend coming down Dragons back as there are some very steep sections so do this circular route in an anti-clockwise direction. Need to have a decent level of fitness and walking poles may be useful for the climbs and steep descents. Also some muddy sections on the bridleway on early part of walk.

Hard work at the beginning but rewarded with amazing views for the entire walk
