Beautiful hike with stunning valley views. Starting with farm lands, up to Black Hill and through moor lands. Absolutely recommend this hike.

Hard to find the beginning of the route, but really easy to follow down between Ledsham and Fairburn Ings. Nice steady climbs, nothing too challenging. Varied scenery.

Be careful when walking on the top of the crag by Deer hill reservoir as it is a danger zone for the shooting club. When red flags are flying you shouldn't walk up there but the area isn't marked sufficiently at the top so I accidentally stumbled through it. Other than that it's a very clear path to follow with no chance of getting off track. Fairly busy with walkers down near the reservoirs.

Good walk on mostly man made paths and roads but wear trousers for the river section. Much overgrowth of stinging and scratching plants.

Good pathways that were very well marked, mostly flat and went through thr middle of Esholt which was lovely. Smell wasn't too bad, though it was noticeable at points, nothing too bad. Would do it again, but make sure its early as it gets busy along the canal.

Good walk full of beauty spots and wild nature. Only down thing is the part through the town which is not ideal, but apart from this really nice walk

WalkingGreat!MuddyScramble

Car park on Reservoir Road, picnic benches, it was quite full when we arrived at 4pm Sunday afternoon. Walk is great for dogs, ours was off lead 98% of time. Not suitable for young children and some elderly. Some steep steps and one stage a scramble uphill using hands! About half way round (we went anti clockwise) there was a choice of go left down to stream or straight on, we went left and this was the only part of the walk that was unclear, very steep and muddy. Lovely walk in moorland and also shaded tree paths. Took almost dead on two hours.

Good walk, well Marlene mainly on tracks. A little hilly but not hard. Great for dogs, mainly off lead but there are areas of livestock so lead required at time.

There is no way this is an easy walk, beautiful, but not easy. Very hilly all the way. The guy below who wrote easy for a 5 year old. Are then on steroids?

Great views and easy to follow. We walked from Holmbridge as we were staying in a cottage and means you can finish with a nice pint and some food at the Pickled Pheasant!Though if you have a dog half of walk on lead (sheep) and a couple of gates that unless dog is particularly Agile and can climb ladder crossings they will need lifting over . We have a 35kg Labrador so provided some amusement!

really tough walk as you get away from the reservoir. alot of bikes but never had any problems sharing the trail. terrian is very hard on your feet and ankles, a good pair of boots or shoes are needed. amazing 360 views.

A nice easy walk through the woods, then down along the canal and back.

23/07/2020The start is through a field and today the crop was shoulder high, then through the woods the public foot path is marked in yellow. The path tends to disappear as you come up to Ledstam Hall and (community centre? ) then it is down hill without any clear pathways. Ledstam is a pretty little village with a pub and benches where you can rest and get your bearings, the trail can be a bit hard to pick up but look for the Bridle path, from there on wards you really can not go wrong. A near perfect hike, with plenty to make you stop and stare. Fairburn Nature Reserve was great although the facilities were closed do to Covid, but there are picnic benches you can use and plenty of seating areas as you go round. Coming back up wasn't as bad as i expected, even if it was slightly up hill. The weather today was a mixture of showers and sun shine so perfect walking weather.

We come to Middleton woods often but find it hard to follow the different trails, there's so many little points of interest dotted around the park. The only downside we have found sometimes is the amount of bikes around with the dog off lead but a lot of this route is away from where the bikes are commonly found.

I couldn’t complete this walk as parts of it are on private tracks with padlocked gates. There were livestock in one field that was padlocked and as such I didn’t feel it was right to follow the route through it. It also requires crossing and walking along the verge of a very busy road (A59) which I wouldn’t recommend. The first part of the walk up to Beamsley Beacon is nice and I found a lovely little footpath from the A59 back over to the start of the route once I had to detour.
