During this part of the journey, you pass the old quarry site. The path goes to the higher side of this quarry, although it is usually safer to walk nearer to the wall.

At the start of these trees, it crosses over footpath 13, running South down the hill.

The footpath starts and ends at the back of the trees, when the road runs parallel to them.
