This walk starts on the outskirts of the village of Birtle at a local pub. The first section follows a rural road to reach a small terrace of houses where there is a tunnel under the houses. A footpath is followed through the remains of a quarry before crossing some fields to reach a bridleway. From the bridleway the route climbs to reach the highest point and then continues down to a golf course. The first section includes a climb of over 110 metres in just under two kilometres. After crossing the golf course the route crosses a motorway to reach a second quarry and the edge of a golf course. From the second golf course the route passes through two woodlands before crossing the motorway again. There is a short but steep climb before following some rural roads to reach a third quarry. The second climb is 75 metres in 1.8 kilometres. The steepest part of the climb is a gradient of 1 in 5. The last part of the walk crosses the outward section before following a footpath across a field and alongside more fields to reach the start point. Crossing the golf course between Waymarks 11 and 13 the path is marked by yellow or yellow-tipped posts. Take care when crossing the course especially near Waymark 13 (tee on the left over the footbridge).
