Moderate walk , beautiful countryside and so many different things to see . Up hills and through woods , around fishing ponds , past an old mill and over train lines. The walk is varied and a lot to see . Walking today in May the bird song was amazing , topped off with Sunday lunch at the bricklayers!

Really enjoyed this walk. Lovely cafe at the start, parking is a reasonable cost and there is plenty to see. The walk to the tower and monument also give you a nice workout - but you can do a there and back and keep to the paved track if you wish. All dogs must be kept on leads because of the deer and other wildlife. The whole area is very well managed and free from litter, etc. It would be a great place to take a picnic and we shall visit again in the future.

Great walk if you like trains. Did this in reverse as wanted the longer train journey back to Leicester. Took the bus to Rothley to enable me to do this. Tea shops at the start and finish which is always good. The paths were very dry when I did this walk the only muddy bit was by the river coming into Quorn, and that wasn’t too bad.

Lovely walk, however coming back up to the canal. Had a delightful argument with an angry farmer informing me there is no footpath and there never has been despite it being clearly sign posted! Recommend being a gun...

quite scenic trail.

A very easy, pleasant walk with lots of bird life.

very fast flat 10k route, traffic in places so bare in mind if you run with a dog.

Lovely walk, done a couple of times before, where you leave the road to go downhill through the orchard the path is no longer obvious, have done some building work and you have to find your way through. Also path back up to Neville Hall is quite overgrown and needs careful working through but the views are worth it once you get there.

Fantastic walk great scenery and the instructions were bang on the nail.

Good walk that takes in the lovely River Soar. No livestock when we walked it in Jan 2015 - but we could see traces of where they had been. It was quite muddy but nothing that a pair of boots couldn't cope with.
