Comments

Great walk, well signed. Didn’t see anyone the whole way which we loved.

Highest part of the loop is a saddle: looked like the peaks either side would not have been too complex if you had time, although off-track (raining and had a shoe blow out the day we did this walk!).

A bit steep and scrabbly in parts: fun for adults but younger kids would struggle.

Nice workout on this loop, requires some fitness as some steep sections. Rewarded with great views of the other side of the range.
