Some work is required on this trails as there are a number of surface issues and waymarking is confusing in places. Along the route there is no clear way to distinguish between the Lonehort Heritage Trail and the Fort Loop Walk so please be aware of this. Having said that, the views and beach near Lonehort Point, as well as several interesting information panels, make this a pleasant and interesting walk.
