A walk in the woods

Followed jackill's route through the forest. Car to car it took us 90 minutes, although we did go astray for a while so I reckon you can do this in 70 minutes. It's a pleasant walk stroll through mature evergreens, with very little in the way of steep climbing - you could easily do it in trainers. Save it for a sunny Sunday afternoon.
