A great walk. We had no problem with the horses, they barely looked up. This walk is very steep from the off and for a long while, but the view from the top is outstanding. If I did this walk again I'd probably do it the other way round as climbing down through Ebbor Gorge was difficult. Even though it was a hot and sunny day, the rocks were wet and slippery. I'm sure it would have been safer to climb up.

Note a slight mistake on the directions: Paragraph 1 - it should be "fence on your right", not left (it also mentions "3 lone trees"; there are now only 2, one has fallen over)! PS. All horses were fine, they ignored us.

A nice little walk, bit steep at first, but easier then on, great views. We encountered horses at both the beginning and end of this walk, and on both occasions they were happy to let us walk through, one even came to say hi.
