An interesting and varied nine miler that straddles the County Durham and Tyne and Wear border. Half of the walk is through the delightful woods that the area is noted for and a long railway path that reveals great views looking north across the Team Valley links the two wooded halves of the walk. The circular route totally surrounds the popular award-winning Beamish Open Air Museum.

The walk starts from near the entrance to Beamish Museum and passes through a series of individual woods collectively known as Beamish Woods as the route heads along the Team Valley following the Heritage Way route and briefly following the River Team before intersecting the Great North Forest Trail, a former railway track-bed. A long pull up the gently rising track follows before the route heads south through a charming Woodland Trust Nature Reserve and then a delightful wooded lane to pass around Beamish Hall Hotel. The final section of the walk leads you once again into Beamish Woods for a very pleasant ramble back to the car park.
