Challenging ride to the ridge, great views over the Firth of Thames.

Mostly 4wd track, a few challenging sections on the climb up, but the views are worth it! Gentle ride along the ridge, fast flowing 4wd track down to the carpark

Anti clockwise there are a LOT of stairs to climb. I went anticlockwise up, then back the same way. Some slippery clay where wet or after rain....

Wide track. Uphill is a slog. Downhill ride is fun quick blast. A ride I would only do once
