Visit by motorcycle. Good parking. Walked around part of the red route. Superb variety and number of butterflies. It looks like the land is managed for them. Very good cafe visit. BLT baguette with potato wedges and salad.

Yes, but more suited for off-road bikes. The path is quite gravelly in places.
