Nice easy walk, very good paths - mostly roads and gravelled trails, so really good for days when the. weather isn't so good and you don't fancy being stuck up on the moorland in the middle of a cloud and horizontal rain. I was lucky that it was pretty quiet when I went because it had just rained. I can imagine it normally is extremely busy. ALSO - the elevation gain listed here is wrong, it's actually about 300m. There aren't any really big hills. There are some really love lovely views, despite not being high up!

I would recommend this trail for people wanting an easy well established route with no hills and good for dogs

Lovely peaceful walk through countryside. Didn’t see another soul... great for social distancing! Would imagine route to be very muddy during winter but perfect for a (dry!) summers day.

Beautiful walk with a wonderful suprise at the end with springs, waterfalls and rocky paddling.

Great walk, especially the forest path its like something out of a movie. Definitely recommend

Cracking walk, did it this morning and really enjoyed it. We have had a long dry spell, but there are a couple of boggy bits even after that, so I would say boots essential on this route. One where I will go back when the sun's out again

Great walk enjoyed by all. lovely scenery and some hills too. only bit I didn't like was the cows

Really great route for cycling, beautiful scenery. Path is a bit rough in places so not ideal for a road bike.

Really good walk but would not recommend doing in the winter as u walk up a stream and it can get really hard to cross at times. (i have fallen in a few times!) also a very very steep bit climbing up after u've climbed the stream so hard in ice ! views are amazing. overall quite steep, unsure if you'd want to try with baby backpack on.

Stunning view over the mountains. Second the best after Mount Fuji.

A nice 5km loop and an easy pathway to follow.

Great trail and even better views of Hadrians Wall, Sycamore Gap and the old fort. One thing we will say: we are avid hikers and this trail does have steep sections, plus it’s quite long. For this reason, would grade at moderate rather than easy. A great hike to do while in the Hexham region.

a beautiful scenic walk around nature. plenty of wildlife and flowers and birds to see. very calm and peaceful. the bridge at the beginning is out but you can either climb on and over or get your feet wet! just make sure phone is secure in pocket. not a breaking a sweat kind of walk but definitely one to try.

Fairly easy 2.5 hour walk. Some steep hills but nothing too challenging. Lots of road time, though traffic tends to be light to none existent. You pick up the start of the Cumbria Way on your return to Ulverston. It was a lovely afternoon out.

Walked slightly different route - from Standing stone car park and back through Macclesfield forest. Great views along the way, worth to take off road routes to avoid crowds on the stairs.

Amazing walk, stunning paths and trails to enjoy and Craft Brews is a must make stop, picked up a litre of their IPA to take with us for the remainder of the walk, yummy, especially if you stop by the river to enjoy your beer and the scenery.

Not too far from home, this walk brightened up a grey day. Lots of open spaces, mixed with narrower paths alongside the river. Not too much people traffic, friendly locals and an added ruin bonus..

Beautiful place !! So peaceful, lovely nature walks. Different routes to go. My 9 month old pup loved it.

Good walk enjoyed the bits along the canal and the aqueduct..suitable for dogs

This was our first trail using AllTrails. The walk itself was easy for the most part to moderate in places (mostly due to incline.) Unfortunately the path was severely overgrown in several places which led to us getting a little off track/lost. The views and scenery are spectacular and it was well worth the trip. I would recommend this trail for adults and families with teens. We did see people with dogs, so I would assume it is dog friendly.

Great walk but had to walk through 3 fields not long after the activity centre two of which had horses in them. No warning given and in one field the horses were actually blocking the path, my friend was very nervous. Managed to get past but on leaving the field there was a sign to say “horses may bite or kick”. No warning of that at the beginning of the fields. It may be the sign has been put up by the owner to cover themselves but as this walk brings you from the other direction there should be a warning sign at both ends. Otherwise, great walk

Very bland and not pretty. Lots of walking on roads and some are dangerous. Much better walks to pick than this one.

Lovely walk for little legs, lots of bugs, snails and the bird life is great - we saw ducks, swans, geese, egrets, sparrows, robins, goldfinch and gulls. Not great for doggies that like to be off lead as it’s a nature reserve so on lead all the time. There are 3 car parks so I would check the furthest away first. And absolutely no shade - today was a drizzly cloudy day so perfect as there were lots of birds out.

The woods itself are great, old Oaks tower above you and the wooden walkways are a nice touch. There are some stretches of canal nearby if you want to go under the motorway - otherwise stick to the woods and do a few loops.
