Long walk good time to waste five hours and beautiful views

it's a very scenic walk. There are some steep parts between tenby and saundersfoot and a particularly steep set of stairs resembling the 700 steps of highhrothgar so take it slow if you're carrying a backpack and watch your footing. Other than that I highly recommend it, theres a stream about halfway between Tenby and Saundersfoot so if you take a water filter you can re-fuel quite easily.

pretty steady... very steep at the beginning but balances out... not great signal for accurate recordings

This is a beautiful area to explore. The trails are very clearly marked as you walk alongside the lakes and river. Most of the trail is fairly flat, but there are some areas with a fairly steady incline. There is plenty of forested areas to walk through.

Thank you the site is brilliant Regards Jon

Great trail with good descents, hard going in wet weather. Gorlech not too far away.

Lydstep to Saundersfoot (via Penally and Tenby) is a very good, and at times challenging, mountain bike ride. Best to avoid Winter months as certain areas can get overly muddy!

Gorgeous, remote, ocean views with lovely countryside. It does get very narrow and you are right by the edge of the cliff in some spots; be careful in windy conditions and watch out for the sheep that will block your path from time to time! I did a 5 mile stretch of the trail which was challenging yet pleasant.

Quality biking, though tricky after a lot of wet weather

We have walked the trail from Dale to St David's. Absolutely gorgeous!
