Fourni Walk
An easy to follow trail with unmade and concrete paths.
A few minor sections that are through foilage and trees.
The first section is fairly gentle incline followed by a small flat section before a fairly hard going incline up to the highest point of the walk.
After that mainly a descent back down and through the lovely village of Fourni before returniing to the starting point
