On our visit (24.03.22), the path was mostly rocky, and otherwise hard and mostly dry. The posts are easy to spot, certainly from one to the next, sometimes you can see two or three in a row. The path takes you along the lower ridge and eventually to a higher ridge. We didn't get that far, happy enough with a walk to the 9th or 10th post in from the car park.
There are outstanding views. On your left, you have Bantry Bay and the Beara Peninsula. On your right, you will see Kilcrohane village below and beyond that Dunmanus Bay and the Mizen peninsula. We had fantastic weather and that helped enormously. For more on Sheep's Head and the many superb walks (short and long) available, read here.
