Stage length: 3.3 miles Time: 1 hour 30 minutes Level of Difficulty: Moderate
This section starts with a fairly steep climb up to Cefn Bryn, but is then all along the level or downhill. The lower slopes of Cefn Bryn can be muddy, so waterproof footwear is strongly recommended.
The final 50 yards of this section are along the side of the busy South Gower Road (A4118), so please take care walking along the road, particularly with children. If you wish to avoid this, do not take the path down to Nicholaston at Gower Way marker stone 11, but instead continue along the broad path to reach Penmaen.
