After leaving the car park the road gently rises through open woodland and gives good views over agricultural land. It passes Whitehills prehistoric stone circle, then after a fairly level stretch the walk leaves the main track and rises more steeply along a narrower route. This starts in woodland but opens out onto moorland, with good views over to Alford in the west. When it reaches the top of Green Hill the views become a 360-degree panorama over much of Donside. The descent continues round Green Hill until it reaches larger tracks which lead back to the start.

A very enjoyable half day walk with wonderful views over the surrounding Howes. Navigation is very easy and there are marker posts currently in place. Used a lot by cyclists - so look out for them at blind corners on narrow sections!

Thanks for the comment. I think, however, the detail should apply to waymark 2 rather than 3. I also disagree about the right hand bends. There aren't any - you merely keep to the track until you reach waymark 3 to the marker post. All the best, Ian

A lovely walk, enjoyed (mostly!) by our 5 year olds in around 4 hours including lunch. A little extra detail for waymark 3: As you leave the stone circle, and follow the logging road, you will see a horse riding centre in the fields to your right. Keep walking past this, through several right hand bends - the trail to the left is clearly visible and now marked with a green post and red arrow.
