Well marked and graded tracks across island.
Gentle through to challenging.
Maps obtained from tourist sites ( museum).
Very safe island. Can ride hire bikes to start of walk and simply leave there unlocked.

We did several of the walks available and they ranged from simple, casual strolls to mountain goat types. All offer something different, but all were wonderful. What a great adventure. Take proper boots to protect your ankles

The Island has a multitude of great walks that are very accessible, well signposted, and maintained. Use the fold out green map or purchase the rambles book.

We are two ladies over 65 and we managed all but the mount Gower walk. Just take your time and enjoy the scenery. Take water and a camera. The hardest one was we did was the Malabar trail which is up a steep hill. I used a walking stick as I have an injury and still managed it. Most of the walks have tree roots and rocks so you have to be careful.

Self guided walks around the island are a great way to see everything. Clif top walks involve a lot of steps. The fitter you are the better.

We walked most of the tracks in the week we were on the island and found some challenging and sone easy. All took you to magnificent views of the island.

This walk gives you fantastic views across the whole island. It is not the hardest walk on the island but some parts can be difficult. The views are worth it.

Stranded due to cancelled flights so did the North Bay walk, grade 3. Steep going up and down, steps and sleepers as a path way, signs marking your distance, there is no view at the top which was disappointing, it’s like an hour on a step machine set on high, going down is tougher. Once you arrive, it’s beautiful. We walked back along the shore line, shorter but very rocky and boulders to climb over. Worth doing.

These walking tracks are just amazing. Some are pretty tough but the views are outstanding. These are world class and if you're a hiker then this Island will show you a thing or two. There are several walks so it's easy to fill a week. In quiet months you can walk the whole way and only see one or two people at most. It's an experience you will remember.

Lots of options for everyone to do some exploring, from easy flat walks to Little Island Track to Mount Gower which is with a guide. Highly recommended to do.
