This walk is quite demanding but not too difficult. There are sections which can be a bit of a scramble, where the path has been worn to rock and smoothed by the passing of feet. Much of the route is along field-paths and tracks, though some sections of road-walking are required, mostly on the return around Monyash.

The route along Deep Dale is a constant steady climb, not too steep, which is the only long climb of any note. The return route has a steep descent returning from Sheldon to the Wye Valley. This has steps cut into the bank to ease progress, though as it is through woodland in autumn after leaf-fall it can still be quite slippery. The path following the valley from bottom of bank has a few short steep sections of climb.

The pub used on this walk is the Bull's Head in Monyash. This is a walker-friendly pub, though covering muddy boots is appreciated. They offer a good-value menu with reasonable choice, also a good choice of interesting beers. If you prefer, there is a good and popular tea room next door to the pub, again offering good-value fare. Both are situated on the wide village green, with a few bench tables sometimes available. There is a large bench seat at the front of the pub too, with other bench tables in a walled section near the car park.
