The walk, which is almost level, begins and ends in the village of Caton,just to the east of Lancaster. A short stretch of disused railway track leads to the south bank of the River Lune, which is followed to Crook o' Lune bridge where the river is crossed to a car park with toilets and seasonal snack bar. The north side of the river is then followed through woodland to the village of Caton, where a Victorian ironwork bridge takes us across the river again to join the old railway line once more and this is followed back to the start. Views are quite outstanding, the area having been much favoured by Turner and other painters and well-known to literary figures of the 19th Century like the poet, Gray. Birdlife is abundant.
