The route has become extremely popular for all the right reasons however with an increase in visitor numbers also comes increased traffic, litter, toilet issues and noise.  The locals are very friendly and some of the nicest and most welcoming that you will meet however their patience has been severely tested over the years by inconsiderate visitors beeping their car horns, event organisers blasting welcome music at 5am on Sat morning with pre event “warm ups” for hundreds of people whilst villagers are still asleep, local parking issues and of course the litter.

So, show respect – be that courteous hiker, say hello and where possible shop local, collect litter, park in the designated car parking areas only and always have your dog under control which means for many, keep your dog on a lead.
