THE ROUTE AND FEATURES OF INTEREST:

'Route 99': Start Point - Wellhead Car Park This is a signed and promoted route which is ideal for first-time vistors. It'll lead you along winding sandy paths, through forest and mossy clearings. The route up to Hill 99 and its 'squirrel's-eye' viewpoint is well worth it. It's suitable for nearly all abilities and takes a gentle gradient. WHy Hill 99? Probably named by early foresters, this is Culbin's tallest dune at 99 feet. The circular route onwards from the summit has a few steeper sections that less able visitors might avoid by going back down the way they came. For others, the firm, waymarked path completes the circuit back to the car park. For more information click on the Culbin Forest link below.
