The walk is pretty much as described on the website. At the moment it is very dry and even the boggy bits can be crossed with care. Just a few peat trenches that are treacherous. Crossing the fence at the top gate avoids all the worst bits and there is now a worn path on that side too. Very hot with little wind and very clear so could see all the hills mentioned in the walk description.

Cross over the fence here to avoid the worst boggy bits.
