We walked our three dogs at Mamhead trail this morning.... we took the longer loop but only 1.5 miles... Beautiful countryside and stunning views. No speeding mountain bikers.... just happy strollers. This walk is highly recommended for those with limited time or mobility...

Excellent walk to take someone older on as it is flat and not toon far with a superb view overlooking the estuary
