A delightful walk, lots of lovely trees, birds, squirrels etc. Has beautiful views of the sea too. An idea is to leave a car at both ends of the track .

Plenty to see in the way of sea birds in the oyster beds in the North. It's about a 3 mile walk mainly along the sea shore. The track is open to cyclist and horse riders. Free parking at both the North and South ends
