Giant's Causeway Blue Trail
The Blue Trail at the Giant's Causeway has the most footfall of all the causeway trails as it leads directly to the world-famous stones. There's the option to extend this trail by linking up with the Red Trail and continuing on around the bay.
Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre, car park 1 - grid reference NW2918297863
Park in car park 1. If you're travelling through the Visitor Centre, proceed to the back of the centre and exit through the rear doors. You can also walk up the incline and over the grass roof, descending the steps to come out at the rear of the Visitor Centre.
If you're passing through the centre, look up to see people tentatively stepping over the glass panels in the ceiling. If you're passing over the roof, make sure to stop and wave at those down below.
Follow the kerb stone footpath eastward. On your right will be the sheer dramatic cliff face, and on the left, the wild North Atlantic Ocean.
At the viewing point, pause to look out over Portnaboe Bay. Portnaboe's most famous resident, Humphrey the camel, is lying asleep. Can you spot him?
Follow the kerbstone footpath eastward. After Route Highlight 2, you will turn a sharp corner called Windy Gap. From here the causeway stone outcrop will be visible in the distance beyond the bay.
Depart from the path at this point to walk over the causeway stones.
The formal kerbstone path will become a hard core gravel surface just before the causeway stones outcrop. Look for the gap in the rocks beyond the tarmac bus drop-off point and follow this path. You're always moving in an eastward direction.
Depart from the path and walk over some rocky terrain to see the Giant's Boot. Why not take photos and upload them via Instagram using the #mycauseway hashtag?
