Trail description

This is a long loop, of moderate difficulty, leading off the Lady Vale Walk for those who wish to stretch their legs.

There is one steep section as you descend the valley side, but you will be rewarded with a well deserved rest at the small picnic area at Scots Pine.

(Lidcutt Valley) This is a fab trail! The beginning is quite steep but definitely worth it for the amazing view, after the initial hill it's fairly easy and was a beautiful and peaceful walk.

This is an excellent trail. Apart from the initial climb it's quite easy going. Walkers who can't manage the steep section at the beginning could go to the other end at the 'head' of the lady vale walk and enjoy a fair distance of this walk in reverse, either turning back or coming down the steep section instead.

A beautiful, peaceful and relaxing route.
