DESCRIPTION: This pleasant forest walk is suitable but challanging for young children and people using wheelchairs. It follows a gently graded section of the century-old coach road and leads back to the shelter on a more recent track. You can still see sections of old rockwalling along one part of the track.
At the Northern end of the track is a rope handrail. You can use if for guidance, so shut your eyes, and use your other senses as you move through the forest.
