Very nice and relaxing. The markings are easily found. I do wish each marking mentioned the distance we have walked on. Also it might be helpful to give signs of closest exit in case we dont want to finish the wholr round or emergency.

Good enjoyable country walk with some lovely views. The sand dunes entertained my son and it was a pleasant way to spend a morning and burn off a few calories!
