A pleasant family stroll with some lovely sights on route. Convenient as a Plan B if walking on Barden is off due to shooting.
The main feature of interest along the route is Troller's Gill, an impressive limestone scar. Folklore and legend abound here, just google the dreaded Barghest!

All on paths marked paths (except Troller's Gill) with some stiles. May become muddy underfoot in Winter. For those less mobile the rocky terrain in Troller's Gill can be avoided completely.
Little change, expect muddier ground in Winter and more bulls in fields in Summer.
