Shortly after starting the walk the route enters Stubbing Moor Plantation, a pleasant woodland track through a dense wood with an abundance of wildlife and variety of plants and trees. After a short walk through open fields with good views of the surrounding countryside, the route enters Hetchell Woods, which is a nature reserve and so is a good place to see wildlife. Following this route goes through 'Pompocali', a series of mounds which are thought to have originated in Roman times. This is followed by a track which follows a stream and a series of interesting mill ruins. The route goes through Scarcroft Hill, an affluent village with good views of the surrounding area. After a walk through a wooded area, the route crosses a couple of open fields before arriving at the village of Thorner, with an array of interesting cottages and houses. On leaving Thorner, the route passes over a couple of meadows before arriving at Thorner Beck, where there is a stream in a woodland with a carpet of wild garlic (in June). The route climbs to Kennels Lane, a public bridleway which gives good views of the surrounding countryside. From here it is a short walk back to the starting point.
