This walk takes you into an unexplored cwm (valley) where there is solitude, mountains and waterfalls. The climbing is done in the beginning and is not strenuous. There is just one sting in the tail when the track climb steeply up from the stream.

A really nice walk and very easy to follow. The public toilets at the start have been reopened. Not much chance of crossing the stream in January unless you are wearing wellies - too deep and very slippery. Even the stream you have to cross as part of the walk in the National Trust section is something of a challenge after rainfall. Several muddy sections so waterproof boots essential for this one in winter. The return section from waymark 7 onwards is worth the bit of backtracking after waypoint 6 so don't feel you are missing out too much by not going up the other side of the valley.

I have to agree with the comment by M Clarke. It was a bit of a scramble up to the footpath on the other side of the valley but well worth the effort.

On the principle that anything is better than retracing your steps, we ignored the advice to avoid crossing the stream. We crossed at 050220, and if anything, the return journey on the west of the water was superior to the outward leg, creating a satisfying circular walk. Incidentally, the toilets at the start of the walk are permanently closed.
