Great walk with the kids. Also took the Pram - a little tricky in some parts but the majority of the trail was fine. Looking forward to walking it again

Lovely walk with the doggy this afternoon. Didn't notice much poo except someone had picked up after their pooch and hung it on a tree branch!! Not sure what that's all about. I found plenty of bins around the toilet block to pop poo bags in

Lovely, very peaceful and relaxing trail. Lots of nice quiet spots to sit down, relax and enjoy the real nature. We haven't met even one single person/walker on the trail after 6pm, just brilliant!!
