RunningMuddy

Did this as a morning run, its a pretty technical run, with steep climbs and steep descents, didn't realise how boggy the Comb Hill section would be - was thankful that I came out with both shoes still on my feet. As a running loop, its not great, but the views are worth it.

Fantastic location but... This is a FOOTPATH. Not a mountain bike trail. Signs are present requesting no bikes.

First to Review

Scenic. A few hills at the start but stunning views- then down the valley to follow the wall and roads - fairly good going for the most parts.

The route is easy to follow with markers along the route, forestry England have put nice stone path along simonside and dove crag making it easy and less muddy. Lovely views all along, final stage along the road requires care as narrow and some traffic.

WalkingMuddy

One of our favourites, we did it anti-clockwise yesterday which we preferred, we didn’t hurry too much and it took about 6 hours. The walk itself is pretty steady for most walkers, but if you don’t like boggy terrain it’s not for you. If like me you find it quite fun then great! On a sunny day you can see for miles into Scotland, England and out to the Sea and the islands offshore. Plus all the beautiful purple heath, grouse etc.

After all the rain over the past couple of days/nights the paths on the final approach were pretty soggy - but the “spout” was spectacular! Easy terrain and a simple enough clamber down to the bottom of the waterfall itself. Didn’t find the rocks to be slippy at all but we were wearing good boots. Would recommend for a short stroll.

A great opportunity to walk along Hadrian’s Wall and to picnic by the famous Sycamore Gap. Watch out for an alternative view of this beautiful tree as you walk down the path to/from Vindolanda.

really enjoyed this walk. you follow a stream all the way up to the Cheviot crisscrossing over it. you get muddy so make sure you have waterproof boots on but that makes the walk soo much more fun

BackpackingGreat!

Another one of the best sections of Hadrian’s Wall. The landscape starts to change from the highest point of the wall along Winshields Crags (345m) and windswept moorland to the rolling countryside of Cumbria around Thirlwall Castle towards Gilsland. The Samson Inn in Gilsland does great food with gluten free options! Views of the Pennines keep you company along the latter part of the walk, as well as quirky streams, bridges and bogland- take your wellies if it’s raining !

Stunning walk in the Cheviots. As others have said, Walking Boots are a must.

Stunning trail along part of the wall, across fields and roads. just to note parking is past the starting point and I would probably state walk is more moderate ability than easy as some steep steps to climb. Overall a beautiful, peaceful walk.

WalkingGreat!No shade

Absolutely beautiful. If you park at the end of the road (after turning at the private road) it's just under 4miles down to the waterfall and back. You start off walking down the private road and then start the incline up on a gravel path. When you start coming down next to the waterfall there are some rocky parts to climb down that can get slippy when wet. On a lovely sunny day it's a great place to have a picnic (large grassy area at the bottom) and great to jump in at the waterfall and have a swim. (the water is freezing though so would only do this on warm days)

Fantastic walk. The scenery is beautiful on a bright day. First third can be quite busy but still very enjoyable.

Warm and Rainy day, completed the route anticlockwise, Nice steady climb from the start, accompanied by stone steps towards the summit. Various types of terrains to walk along, be cautious of slippery stones. Sturdy footwear with good ankle support recommended. Verdict: Great little walk for those wanting to brush the cobwebs away wether fitness or map reading.

Really enjoyed this walk. The first half is walking down a private road from the parking area to Linhope village, then the climb up starts which is steep in some areas. Once at the spout, the walk down is quite tricky especially in the rain as the rocks ca be very slippery as I experienced! Really worth the look and it’s a fairly quick walk, go take a look!

Fantastic hike, very boggy throughout however, with a number of stream crossings. Be prepared and come with high walking boots!
