Basic Trail Description and special attributes:

A lovely but strenuous walk that starts off in pasture land and winds down through impressive coastal scenery. The path down into Manati Bay is quite wide and was supposedly once a donkey trail to a source of lime in the valley. There are wild guava bushes all around and even some banana trees half way up the cliff back on your left.
