This historic track, built in 1903, follows a damp southern-facing gully between Inspiration Point and Moya Point, and makes for a slippery descent down mossy steps and rough ground, with a dramatic passage down a steep set of steps wedged inside a dark rock crevice. This walk earns its ‘Hard’ grading due to the poor condition of the track and the challenge in navigating.
