Beautiful walking in Malvern

Watch out when walking around the islands. The sand is covered in oil but it’s not visible until you start walking on it.

Lots of volcanic rock and tree roots to watch your footing on. South end was a bit swampy but overall hike was great. Use bug spray and take water! You will sweat

These islands are in Merseyside not Staffordshire. Caution - The route is only passable at low tide.

Brilliant trail, single-track descents are awesome. Fire road climbs.

It is a nice place to walk and relax. We saw seals swimming and playing near the beach. Worth visiting it.

Great walk in nice weather.

Walk through the path of all the islands or risk of quicksand.

Great trek, to get the heart pumping take the dirt path from car park to the summit of Midsummer Hill. Views from all sides. Stop and enjoy the flowers in bloom and the wildlife.

Really enjoyed this walk. The app allowed me to go completely off piste and still get back to the car with no stress. Perfect

Leaping lizards!! There is so much volcanic limestone so please wear sturdy shoes. There were no great open spaces but the rock formations are really interesting. There is plenty of shade which was very nice.

We also saw lots of snakes, birds, a hermit crab and a very large tree frog!

A lovely walk out to the island.

Great day out. Some really nice parts of the walk with beautiful scenery. We walked after few rainy days so it was muddy. I mean it. Really muddy. But still, we had a lot of fun.

Very nice, easy walk. Part along the river is very "soothing".

This is the only hiking trail found in the Cayman Islands. Easily accessible with a well defined trail. During rainy season some areas can get a bit muddy but its nothing too difficult. Lots of flora but very little fauna. Be on the lookout for the very shy Agouti and listen out for parrots.

If you want to cut the trip in half, take two cars and park one at either trail head. After the hike (if you end at the northern trail head) take a ride to Rum Point for a dip in the Caribbean Sea and have one (or two) of Rum Point's famous mudslide. Also nearby is the Queen's Botanical Park. This is definitely worth the visit as its home to quite a few blue iguanas.

Keep bug spray on hand and take 2-3 liters of water. Trainers/Sneakers are fine for the hike. Cotton is not advisable (the humidity is pretty high).

Happy trails!

To get from Kenmore entails pavement walking to the bottom of the Glen Quaich road. From there the single track, paved road winds up to the turn off to the actual trail. The trail itself consists of a broad path through the forest area followed by a decent farm track all the way to Acharn. From there you have to hoof it along the Loch Tay, south side road back to Kenmore. There is traffic, but they respect the "walk friendly" signs.
From the trail the Ben Lawers range is visible as is Loch Tay below. Views of Kenmore are great on a sunny day. Lots of sheep around with the occasional deer, pheasant and grouse. Instead of the farm road down from the second bridge over the Acharn Burn, there is a nice trail down the east side with bridge viewpoints of the Acharn falls. The trail also ends in Acharn village.
It's a convenient walk from Kenmore, with no transport required, hence I have done it 34 times during my annual pilgrimage from South Africa.

Very enjoyable walk. Mostly easygoing terrain but with a few steep spots that required scrambling. Not ideal for very young children, but any active child over 6 should be fine. The Alltrails route passes through a carpark where a food van sells tea, coffee, ice cream, snacks etc. (This was open and trading even on Easter Sunday). The route is a nice mix of track, road and field. I was walking in the rain which made parts very muddy and restricted the views in the higher elevations, but even so I would recommend. Hiking solo at a moderate pace with a light pack took about 3 hours. Next time I'll take the diversion to look at Thor's Cave.

It was a beautiful and easy walking, with the sound of the river always making company. Highly recommended!
