This is a 5 star walk. If your in the area and you love a scenic walk, this is one of the best in the area. 10 euro towards maintenance. Worth every cent. If you are driving, drive to the top by the lakes.go through a tunnel in the rock face, you come out onto what looks like a secret valley.walk about a mile to the official start, where you will get a safety talk..and you'll have a fantastic walk through the valley and cliffs.. when you get to the end keep walking into the village and up to train station where you can find a bus to take you back up to the lakes.
You may enter the bus, which lifts you up to the entrance gate here as well. Depends wich way is closer. Normally the busses start at the train station
