Elliot’s Pass – Walk Around the Mountain

77

While the longest of the Letterbox walks on Green Mountain this is actually the easiest walk being pretty much flat – once you have managed the 10 minutes walk up the zig-zag road from the Red Lion via Bell’s Cottage to the start of the walk. The walk starts on your left just before you reach the Old Marine Barracks – you will know if you are on the right path as almost immediately you pass Elliot Obelisk  just before entering the first of many tunnels on this walk. Fear not, none of the tunnels are long enough such that you can’t see the exit on entering them. Continue reading “Elliot’s Pass – Walk Around the Mountain”

Cronk’s Path – Green Mountain – Take the Low Road

72

In my review for Rupert’s Walk I recommend you do it and Cronk’s Letterbox walk in one hit – one out from, and the other back to, the Red Lion where both walks start – as both walks come together at the North East Cottage. Rupert’s path runs higher up Green Mountain than Cronk’s. Have a look at the map on my separate Green Mountain review. Continue reading “Cronk’s Path – Green Mountain – Take the Low Road”

Rupert Path – Green Mountain – Take the High Road

67

I recommend you do this Letterbox walk and Cronk’s walk in one hit – one out from, and the other back to, the Red Lion where both walks start – as both walks come together at the North East Cottage. Rupert’s path runs higher up Green Mountain than Cronk’s. It doesn’t really matter which one you start with – I started with Rupert’s so this review and my separate review for Cronk’s walk are written assuming you do likewise. The walk out and back will take around two hours. Continue reading “Rupert Path – Green Mountain – Take the High Road”

Dew Pond Walk – Green Mountain – Into The Clouds

57
This is probably the most popular* (though not the most interesting) of Ascension Island’s letterbox walks and takes you to the highest point of the island – the top of Green Mountain – at 2817ft (859m). Note that the peak is about 10-15 metres past Dew Pond and is marked by an old anchor chain (picture 4 below). Continue reading “Dew Pond Walk – Green Mountain – Into The Clouds”
