The first half of this loop is on and sidewalks and paved roads. The second half, descending from the castle is on a trail going through the Great Colonnade.

I started the run very early in the morning to witness the sunrise from the castle and the ruins. There was no road traffic on the roads at that time. Some people were hiking up the castle on the trail.
