SUMMARY

Coastal scenery. Mud glorious mud! Bring your gaiters. Easiest walk in the South West which means generally difficult. No huts. Ironbounds crossed in good weather only. Prone to flooding making rivers and creeks uncrossable. Hence a wait until water levels drop. After writing that, it is a brilliant hike.
