We just got back! What a beautiful walk, nice and easy. Perfect for dogs, loved the walk back through the woodland by the creek.

Absolutely great walk. Beast for a hill at the start but the views are so worth it. I always take my dogs with me and I had no trouble getting them round through the gates. The obly downfall is the last third of the walk if you have your dog with you. I had to hoist my German Shepherd over several of the fence crossings as there was nowhere for them to get through. At the very last part of the walk where the track appears to go on the road and then back off again, stick to the road! You will get stuck at the bottom of the field and have to turn back! My four and six year old children really enjoyed this walk. So many baby lambs!

Good hike. Very boggy and muddy even in May so not one for winter. The route here tries to take you off the main path. DO NOT stray from the path. Quite irresponsible to publish a route that does so. One for more experienced ramblers. It’s more like 15km and there’s a strong descent on slippy grass.

Really enjoyed it. It was hard but when we reached the top it was well worth it

Really enjoyed this wall and will definitely be back.

weather was quite windy , a bob hat may be needed even on a warmer day as it’s very open . the initial slope to the top is a little steep but it soon levels out and offers fantastic views , lots of gliders in the area to admire . we parked on the road as did others

Brilliant 2 and a half hour walk with my four and six year old and the two dogs. Beautiful scenic countryside. Lots of field and off road tracks. Easy to follow route. Dog friendly too. Only issue I had was getting my German shepherd over one stile. There was nowhere for him to crawl through or jump over. I had to throw him over a chest high wire fence. All in all a favulous route that I shall most definitely be returning to!

We arrived at the trail at around 10:10am. We saw a few people on our walk but no more than 20 in the entirety of the walk. The initial climb up Parlick is a hard one, but the rest of the trail is a nice walk with some amazing views on the way. Thoroughly recommend for anyone.

Nice walk with lovely views. I personally enjoyed the first part of the way by the river.

Lovely walk that myself, my partner and the dogs all enjoyed.

Absolutely lovely walk around the beautiful country side

Love this walk. Nice to go to The Barn afterwards for something to eat.

Amazing trail, very peaceful throughout. We took our two dogs and plenty of spots for them to cool off in the river. Not overly busy for a bank Holiday weekend. Will definitely be coming back.

seemed quite a challenging climb and on the way back down i fell on a loose stone path. i wasn’t hurt, but such stunning views and a great area to explore . i really enjoyed the adventure .

Nice walk with good places to stop for photos. Worth noting you can’t take dogs on the route though!

Good walk with the kids, with a nice lunch afterwards.

So the rating for this is EASY ! The incline was bad enough, lost count of the amount of times I had to stop. Once at the top the views were amazing though and I would definitely do it again.

Lovely evening walk, not too taxing. One to be enjoyed with the family next time.

Lovely walk with different varieties. Suitable for all levels and there are few lovely spots for rest. Some of the paths lead through fields so I can imagine how muddy it can be after or on a rainy day so good food wear recommended.
