This circular walk has delightful scenery for almost the entire route. Most of it close to hand either alongside of the canal or through the numerous varieties of different woods and enchanting valleys - much of it managed by the Woodland Trust, and with very little road walking. All of the paths are firm and mostly quite wide and well used. There are no stiles and only a few old wooden kissing gates and one steel snicket. Only one or two easy slopes to climb and no fields to cross so you won't see many farm animals. The walk includes instructions for moored canal boaters.

The walk is suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs and buggies, and adventurous wheelchairs users should get round with the help of a few assistants so long as the chair can be folded in a couple of places. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, but boots will be best if it has been raining heavily as there could be a few occasional muddy patches. There should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. On your route there are no refreshments or picnic tables or other facilities, although a few bench seats and logs can be found along The Dingle. However, there are toilets in the pubs at the start and finish, and if you book in advance, you should be able to get a good meal with a drink; an excellent finish to a good walk.
