The walk starts and finishes at Hetton Lyons Country Park. This is an area reclaimed from pit heaps after the closure of Eppleton Colliery and consists of a large lake for leisure and two smaller ponds, one for fishing and the other for wildlife. It first goes up one of the many disused rail lines in the area, then along quiet lanes and over farmland and also giving a chance to view the large wind turbines on Windmill Hill, which are so visible from many parts around the area.
