It covers wooded and some overgrown areas where the ground is uneven so you will need to wear suitable footwear, thus making it unsuitable for young children and the not so fit. The views from various points doing the walk are lovely. Each year the Park Ranger varies the route. Registration starts at 10.00 am - the Stride commences at 11.00am.
