As I trace old dismantled railway lines this was a good walk. I walked it in one day. This included two detours on old lines which you can also walk most of to Foxdale and Knockaloe. Knockaloe was an internment camp in the war.

The footpath follows a disused railway line from Douglas to Peel, because of this there are no steep gradients. It is generally in open countryside and for some way it runs beside rivers and marshland. The views are lovely and there is abundant wildlife to...More
