A very enjoyable and easy walk, with just a few uphill sections. Views were great, especially down on the coast and through the wooded areas. Waymarkers could be improved, though, and there were 3 points where it was tricky to decide which way to go; one post had been dislodged and was found lying in a bush. Friendly locals helped with directions and, all in all, it was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.
