Reviews

Access to the beauty spot is not difficult and so worth it. Parking is a very short distance from the mountain top so it is the perfect place for those physically unable to hike a further distance. A short walk up a hill and you you have plenty of space to take a seat, walk around and explore, or you can continue along the trail. The Beauty Spot is a very short section. If you continue along the trail, it goes back into thicker woods where there is not as much of a view for miles. The Beauty Spot is an excellent place to watch the sunrise and is the perfect place for small children or pets who can’t go on longer hikes.
