Today’s walk commences in a wooded valley with a modest climb up to the plateau. Level minor roads & Jersey Green Lanes (signposted country lanes where pedestrians and cyclists have right of way) lead through market gardens to the deep wooded valley beside the stream & then all the way to the coast. Once on the coast the walk is level with a short climb over a small peninsula to continue along the coastal path. 80% minor roads/tarmac lane, 20% earthen paths.
A short, easy walk today gives you plenty of time to explore the Jersey War Tunnels at the beginning of the day and relax and enjoy the lovely harbour town of St Aubin at the end. An included short taxi ride through St Helier drops you at the secluded military fortifications of the Jersey War Tunnels, a fascinating museum which tells the story of the German occupation of the island in WWII. Jersey Green Lanes take you through the St Lawrence countryside to join the earthen footpath down St Peter's Valley until the promenade at St Aubin's Bay.

Points of Interest
Jersey War Tunnels
The Jersey War Tunnels tell the story of Jersey's war years from occupation to liberation and offer a fascinating insight into what life was like for the people who lived here. Facilities open from 10am.
Le Moulin de Quetivel
Jersey's last remaining working mill, having been restored between 1971-79. The Mill is only open on Mondays and Tuesdays, so definitely worth popping in for a visit if you happen to be passing on those days.
Food & Drink
If you do want to eat enroute today, it is best to pick up a packed lunch from one of the shops in St Helier before you get collected by your taxi as there is nowhere really to stop until St Aubin. However, as this is a short, easy walk you should arrive in St Aubin in time for lunch where there are numerous cafes and restaurants waiting to tempt you!
