Starting from Dukesfield Quarry at the northern edge of Slaley Forest/Fell Plantation, the route passes south through thick forest, past Scot's Hole. Exiting the forest near Apperley, the track follows the boundary of Dukesfield Fell and Embley Fell, indicated by numerous boundary stones, some of which are marked. After a steep upward section, the track then heads out into the open moor plateau along Carrier's Way, with spectacular panoramic views over Burntshieldhaugh Fell and Birkside Fell. After passing a Gas Pipe Site, the track becomes sealed road, descending to Baybridge down a 1 in 6 gradient. Great rest spot at the picnic site along River Derwent near the County Durham border, before heading into the interesting village of Blanchland, with cafes and a pub. Looping back to the Gas Site over fields and the steep uphill climb, then follow the sign to Pennypie House and up on to the Blanchland Moors for great views of the Derwent Reservoir to the east. Short loop to Warlaw Pike triangulation point at 402m high, before the gradual descent to Actoncleugh Head and past the Slaley Forest information point, back to the starting point.
