A challenging little walk through the hill farms that surround Smiddy Shaw Reservoir high up on Muggleswick Common. One third of the route includes walking along long since used railway lines.

The walk starts from Waskerley Station, a former railway station and depot on Muggleswick Common to the north of Stanhope. A long walk along an old railway line starts the walk before the route heads off down the sloping moor to intersect the Hisehope Beck at the lowest point of the walk. The route then leaves the Open Access land of the moor to pass through a series of hill farms and eventually intersects Nanny Mayer's Incline, a long since used relic of the railway age that fuelled the Industrial Revolution for a return to the car park at Waskerley Station.
