The walk starts at the popular pic-nic area at Edisford Bridge
(a municipal car park is found nearby) and follows close to the bank of the
Ribble to Great Mitton. A break may be enjoyed here either at the Aspinall
Arms, Mitton Hall or The Three Fishes.
From Mitton to join the footpath at Lower Hodder Bridge walking
along the road is necessary; walk on the verge on the left to avoid the traffic.
The rest of the walk is across green fields and pasture. Bashall Barn
offers the opportunity for a beer, a coffee or tea (open seven-days-a-week 9.30-17.30).
The walk concludes at the Edisford Bridge pub which is open
