This is called Deliverance because of this stone on the route.. .Which has a quote from the 1972 film "Deliverance" (starring Burt Reynolds), which involves an ill advised canoe trip and an encounter featuring a banjo...



SPECIFIC SECTION NOTES - CP13 - CP14:
Very straight forward section minimal elevation. There has been a lot of landslide along this route so just be aware of footing especially at night. Quite a lot of the route was very slippery in wet conditions. Once going through the final golf course you will not be heading out to the light house. Once near the section where it heads to the point, you can join the path and head to the golf club carpark then straight up the road. Be aware CP14 will be moving which will make this section shorter, but add a bit to the final section. This is due to the way the coastal route goes and avoids adding an additional down hill and uphill.

GROUND CONDITIONS:
Ranges from gravel, tracks, tarmac, mud some ankle deep, slippery and jagged rock. Hopefully the track would have dried out by May (but this is Brutal Events, so will most probably be hurricanes and tornados).

NAVIGATION:
Fairly straight forward, coastal path is well signed. Pembrokeshire is the Acorn and Welsh Coastal Route signs. This changes at the RNLI station at Poppit Sands. It is then a Celtic symbol with the Welsh Coastal Path sign. This carries on through St Dogmaels, (be aware in St Dogmaels some signs are missing, but the bracket is still there and you can work out the route to take.) Once you go over the stone arch bridge close to CP3, this then changes to the Ceredigion sign and Welsh coastal path sign. Pay attention when entering built up areas, as the signs can be hard to see.

IMPORTANT:
Never follow the signs with a lone figure as this is just a general walking route. The only time you should follow it is when it is with a coastal path sign.

If using the GPX file, it is fairly accurate. A few times it will say you are off route. But if you’re on a well defined track, then you’re right and it will bring you back on course. For the recce, I used the coastal signs and only used the Garmin to check the route.

If you’re using crew, there are numerous places along the route that they can get to you for aid between the main CPs. Be aware some of the roads are narrow and single lane traffic.

Toilets are sparse, so use them when you see them!
