1 From the car park, go up the wooden steps and follow the footpath next to the stone wall. Keep following the path, past a picnic area and through the kissing gate. The path is wide and well-made through all this section, ascending slightly to reach the ridge top.
2 The path descends, away from the ridge edge towards the right before immediately curving back to the left. Keep following the main path. Keep an eye out for a path to your left, just after the first clump of trees. Take this path which turns left just before reaching a rock face.
3 The path immediately descends before reaching a steep-sided wooded slope. Pass by large rock boulders into the woodland. The path levels off, keep following this path as it cuts across the hillside towards the road. When you pass a house on your right, the path descends to a gate.
4 Pass through turning left onto the road which meanders back up towards the car park.
