This steep and narrow track slides diagonally across a cliff face, with the adjacent near vertical drop helping to focus the mind.

Bikers usually take this route on the way down from the Light House Track. You might encounter walkers going up, which can be interesting in places because there is no room to pass.

Access Info

On the Pencarrow Head track, about 750m before the Lower Lighthouse, you'll see a narrow track heading up the cliff... that's it. If you get to a cattle stop in the road, you've gone about 100m too far south.

When descending Light House Track, climb over the stile at the saddle point about half way down Light House Track.
