This is an undulating walk with plenty of fairly flat bits in between and two rest stops along with several catching up points.
Autumn weather means appropriate walking boots and clothing should be worn as the ground may be slippery and wet and the weather conditions variable.
Packed lunch and water to stay hydrated are recommended and dogs are welcome to join us for this walk.
There are toilets at the halfway point during the pub break.
