This route starts near to Hapton Station in Hapton. It uses several urban roads to reach open countryside and a canal. The route then goes under a motorway and across a railway line (which is crossed twice by level-crossings) to reach some woodland. After walking through the woodland there follows a section along a rural road to reach the village of Huncoat. There is a visit to a war memorial and a peace garden in the village. There is another section through woodland before going through a housing estate to reach a third section of woodland. After going through the woodland the route crosses some fields and a footbridge over the motorway to reach a canal. The canal is followed before crossing a field back to the motorway and reach a footbridge over the motorway and back to the start. Most of the walk follows the Huncoat Trail, which is marked on posts throughout the walk.

Did this walk early December 2022. Nothing energetic so it was just right for a cold winter's day. A rather urban start (hence 4 stars) leads quickly to rural sections with some interesting little features in Huncoat. I downloaded the GPX file which made navigation easy, but there's nothing to suggest it wouldn't be equally straightforward by printing it out.
