Description Suggest change

The Country Area is often less crowded than the Main Wall, and tends to be warmer when the sun is out. But the lower parts, particularly on the right side gets shade earlier in the day than the Lower and Upper Walls. So on a sunny day, it is warmer in the morning, cooler in late afternoon.

Getting There Suggest change

After you cross the train tracks, walk right along the tracks, following an access road. Soon, the road turns off to the left into an leveled, open area with a picnic table and an obvious tunnel, now sealed off.
