BELOW: End of the Land Rover track and where I left my bike. From here, there are red marker posts to follow. One can be seen on the left of the track (blue arrow).

 

It took me about 1 hour to get to this point, pushing my bike up the hill. On the return journey it took me 6 minutes from here back to the car park [Gary Nelson].

BELOW: Several of these signs are passed on the way. The sign reads: "Hillwalkers. Stile over deer fence." To call the fence a 'deer fence' is a bit optimistic! [Gary]

BELOW: The well advertised stile over the 'deer fence'. They must be very small deer in this area!

 

This stile is rotten and unstable and turned out to be the most dangerous part of the walk! [Gary]
