nice walk..starts off abit marshy in the beginning taking the first path of the road, but only lasts for 5 minutes, had it have rained recently would of been much wetter. In this case could have walked the road up though. lovely walk.

Did this fabulous walk in an anticlockwise direction, conditions were perfect , slightly chilly but not too cold, however, once at the summit it was cold with a strong breeze. very clear views in all directions. First time in 40 years I had been up here, why oh why did I leave it so long? It was very busy today, mainly because of society's position in troubled times, everyone was very polite, giving space where needed. A lo of respect for a fabulous walk.

Highly recommend this walk, a couple steep bits throughout, really easy to follow route. Absolutely worth it once you get to the waterfall at the end. Beautiful little picnic and photo spot nice easy trail back. (backdated review we hiked this in summer 2019)

A late afternoon walk in good weather conditions for mid March. The only problem we came across was early on in the walk. On the approach to the stone wall, there is a fenced off area where they have planted new trees, so you have to negotiate around this area. The views from top of the hill give you fantastic photo opportunities of Bamburgh Castle and Holy island on one side and snow topped Cheviots on the other, and the Caves are fabulous.

Brilliant walk. Taking in a viaduct, pow camp and a castle. Beautiful Riverside walk and stunning countryside. Easy although a bit muddy in places. With a pub at the end. What more could you want!

really nice walk, very grateful for shelter in the church due to rain/snow storm. would appear farmer has put in a couple of fences which needed a bit of climbing. field around the old peel tower was a bit boggy but it has been very wet recently.

Weather was mild for the 1st of February, dry but very windy out in the open. Outward journey was easy through Bolam Lake, but as you go over the decking bridge, just as you pass the open area, look for a thin trail taking you up for about 100m through the woods to meet up with the main trail. From there on it's all clear. However, we encountered very strong headwind as we walked through the farm roads, but on the other side of the crag we had a tailwind all the way back. Enjoyable walk.

Unfortunately the farmer has changed the public footpath and put a steep ladder up so you can’t get you dogs up there and if you do you’re met face to face with a bunch of cows. He has breeze blocked the path to make it inaccessible. Don’t bother your time with starting here!

Nice trail followed the green trail to start then headed up to callaly crag 5.4 mile. Reasonably flat.

We did this trail in reverse, finishing off at Ros Castle, rather difficult as Gps can falter in the woods. Trail is rather difficult to pick up as you climb through the woods, and quite steep clambering up to the gated access to the moors. However, we had a glorious day 18/01/20 and had a fabulous view from the top of Ros Castle.

Very easy flat path around a lake. We went on to a beach walk afterwards - plenty paths up to the beach from this route.

I started at Plessey Woods car park, it’s around half a mile to starting point. Trail is easy up until Blagdon Estate where it was muddy and slippy underfoot, pleasant walk though, and very mild for early January.

Loved this walk... did in early January, the weather threw a little bit of everything at us, but totally invigorating

Didn’t end the route correctly and recorded our drive to Barter Books afterward, whoops! Great route thought, went late in the day so the last hour was through the dark spooky woods

Really loved this trail. The day was perfect weather to walk from craster fishing village to the castle and then into the sweeping beaches up to low Newton. I’d recommend a pit stop for some lunch half way at the ship inn pub. The trail was beautiful all the way along and is prefect for dogs. I’d highly recommend this trail

Great trail - some steep sections, however, the paths are very well maintained. Our dog loved the climb and racing through the heather at the top of the crags. Beautiful views from the top.

Great trail following the red route signs the way round we went ascended simonside first which was the steepest part but easy to do as path was laid out throughout the route would recommend and the dog also loved it!

Done this walk several times with my three dogs. We all managed it well although there are some rocky parts which are a little challenging but only for a short period and when you get to the top it’s all worth it!

The trail was well kept and clean, with clean toilet facilities and plenty of benches for picnics. Dog and child friendly and would probably be really nice when in the summer with the little pebble beach. I would say it probably shouldn't be classed as an easy walk now though. We chose it as we were walking with my elderly grandparents whom struggle after knee operations to get up/down slopes and steps. But the flatter part of the walk is now blocked off due to a landslide risk so we had to climb quite a steep slope and large amount of steps to get to the next pathway; but we only found this out as we arrived at that point. Then the bridge around half way through the walk to get to the flatter point was collapsed so we had to turn back the way we came. I would usually rate it a 5star but I think it shouldn't be rated as easy. It is also a pay/park car park but if often full or change so cannot give out tickets so I'd recommend taking a pen/paper to write a note in case it isn't working. But it will still print out a ticket with your national trust card.
