What an amazing walk-we had all the different weather thrown at us,but it just made the walk even more fun! I took countless photos and couldn’t believe how quiet it was. We cannot wait to do it again(the other way).

The walk is quite steep and tricky in places, so will not suit everybody but worth it for the views. Walk can be extended to Soar Mill Cove for the more adventurous and athletic. Also National Trust at Overbecks worth a visit.

Great clifftop walk to enjoy in the sun. Some occasionally strenous sections and not many places to find drinks so bring some with you.

Depends how fast you walk. Has a couple of big hills to walk up too.
