Route

From the Adàwe Crossing, we will head south meandering through the park and stopping often throughout. We will do a loop then head back north towards the Adàwe bridge where the walk will finish. 

The route is flat, but we are walking across grass. If it is muddy, it may be difficult for some. Please dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes!
