We are currently working hard on way-marking all 9 Stages of the Trail. So far we have marked 6 Stages but also some of the other Stage beginnings.

Look out for our bright blue way-markers

We will keep updating this site, letting you know which sections are way-marked. To date we have completed Stages 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6.
