The start point of this walk is 400 metres above sea level which provides spectacular views of the sea, coast and mountains and on a clear day, the mountains of Africa can be seen. From the shared parking location, the route follows the main track down into the valley and then there is a steep climb back up to the same level as at the start. The walk drops slightly and then there is another steady climb to the highest point in the circular walk as it loops around providing views across to Ojen. From this point, the walk is mainly downhill back to where the walk started. This walk is on a wide track throughout which provides easy walking conditions.

From the parking spot, there will be car sharing for 3 km on a well-maintained unmade road to reach the starting point of the walk.
