This circular walk includes one short footpath close to Tarvin which is not often used (photo on the right), and this is probably one of the best features although the short steep bank to the first stile is a bit awkward. The other being one half of the magnificent Grogan’s woodland walk soon after the start where you may also see squirrels. You are likely to see farm animals in adjacent fields to your footpaths. The wooden kissing gates are excellent, and of the six stiles one has collapsed (but not a problem to step over), another is very old and worn and the rest are in good order. The best scenic view is from a field gate near the end of Platts Lane which overlooks the river Gowy flood plain for quite a long distance. The return route up the Baker Way is up a slope alongside a field of crops.

Although there are no playgrounds the route is suitable for most children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs & buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled will but boots are always best, and apart from a few nettles at the end of the unused footpath there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. On your route there are no refreshments or facilities, except for the bench seats through Grogan’s Wood.
