A diverse walk in the rolling hills of mid County Durham. This interesting walk includes railway paths, lanes, an Auto-cross track, newly planted plantations, quiet roads, fields, a horse training gallop and a Golf Course.

The walk starts along a short section of the Deerness Valley Railway Path before entering Stockley Fell through landscaped plantations that were formerly the site of a huge opencast mine. A little road walking follows on a quiet road at the highest point of the route before the route once again descends through the fell followed by field walking to arrive on the outskirts of Willington at the lowest point on the route. Lane and field walking follows, as the route passes through a horse training gallop before the walk delivers you to the village of Helmington Row. The route then passes through the middle of a golf course and up to a hill high above the town of Crook that presents great views looking past the town and along the entrance to the delightful Weardale valley. The final lap descends steeply off the hill to re-intersect the Deerness Valley Railway Path for a return back to the car park in Stanley Crook.
