Sark Walks - Extract from The Channel Islands Way
This walk begins almost the moment you get off the boat, because our route starts just beyond the tunnel which is yards from the jetty. After passing through the tunnel, walk up the hill for about 200 yards, and take the path on the left marked Foot Path. Climb the steps. When the path splits, take the left fork to Les Laches. Climb the winding steps; a superb view of Creux Harbour lies ahead over to the left. At the top, where the path levels off into an open area, bear left and continue on the wide track that leads through the trees.
Follow the track as it bends right and heads inland. Walk on until we reach a small wooden gate beside a signpost on the left. Go through the gate and follow the finger post towards Derrible Bay and Hogs Back. Go through another gate, and then walk straight ahead towards the sea. The depression in the ground on the right is the Dew Pond, a man-made water catchment lined with clay used for watering animals. Below us is Derrible Bay. At the sign for Hogs Back, turn right and carry on, with the sea on our left. In a few yards a set of steps appears in a gap in the gorse on the left so descend these, go through a gate, and descend further. Avoid a path on the left, which leads to Derrible Hole, and continue straight on. The path rises again through the undergrowth, before reaching a T junction. Here, turn right to head back inland. (If we turn left, we go to the Hogs Back, where there is a cannon, and extensive views over Derrible and Dixcart Bays and south to Little Sark.) Walk on the right hand side of a field for a short distance, before the track bends left onto rough gravel, descends and arrives at a rough staggered crossroads.
Go over the crossroads onto concrete, follow the sign to Dixcart Bay, and continue on through the woods. When the path divides take the left fork, then left again at the next junction shortly afterwards. When we get to another path, turn left towards Dixcart Bay. The path descends beside a cottage, and after some distance goes over a small footbridge. Avoid a hairpin bend which turns up to the right and continue beside the stream as it makes its way down to the sea. At the next path uphill, bear right and climb. Dixcart Bay is on the left below us.
