The first part of the trail is a beautiful stone paved road which then becomes a wide scraped trail of loose rock and sand. The trail begins with a steady uphill, around 1.5km, which gives the calves a great workout. The rocks are pretty loose and slippery throughout the trail and one need to keep an eye on your steps
