The walk takes you up to the top of the Dewerstone, passing an old granite tramway and a winch building, all now derelict. The walk continues through a Neolithic settlement before eventually arriving at Cadover Bridge, a popular spot to swim in the river and picnic. There is nearly always an ice cream van here. The walk back is along the Pipe Track. When the china clay quarries were working at Cadover the clay slurry was sent down this pipe all the way to Shaugh Bridge, where the walker will see the huge settling tanks and loading bays, all now encrusted in moss.

The first few hundred metres or so are a bit steep but it soon levels out. In fact, having reached the Dewerstone except for a minor bit of undulation it's downhill all the way back.
