Quarry lookout Map

This is a popular hiking route which is generally considered to be easy. It's not remote, it features low exposure and is typically done between April and November. From a low point of 95 m to the maximum altitude of 186 m, the route covers 6.2 km, 166 vertical metres of ascent and 165 vertical metres of descent.


Set off from the car park and follow mainly white, and then green, followed by blue. The quarry is the highest point in the walk and makes for a good water break, and the old oak is well worth passing by on the return journey.



Walking along a well-kept trail that’s mostly flat. No obstacles are present.
