A wonderful walk with plenty to see and a NT cafe part way round. A walk that can be easily extended with plenty of photo opportunities.

Great place to walk with the family and dogs. Various routes you can take and a nice cafe stop on the way. Nice any time of the year.

Watersmeet a wonderful place to go outside for a walk along a trail where the waters meet. The crashing sound of water is exhilarating. There are many plants and wildlife to see.
