A combination of concrete road and mountain tracks. Some parts are very steep. This walk feels longer due to the terrain. Good fun and great views.

This is where we parked to start. To shorten the walk it is possible to drive further on the concrete road. So I didn't lag behind the others I didn't make notes as I went. Hopefully these directions are correct - please let me know if I made a mistake . The photos were taken en route so all the way-markers are correct.
