This walk is typical of some those offered in this series; a combination of a fell and a river walk. The first part of the walk from Dunsop Bridge to Giddy Bridge is a pleasant stroll through fields and park land. There then follow a climb past Higher Birkett to Birkett Fell and on towards Marl Hill.
From Crimpton to Whitewell there is a welcome descent through pasture land and woodland.
The Inn at Whitewell is a popular venue for drinks and lunches now open all day.
On the return from Whitewell the narrow road can be partially avoided by using the concessionary FP found on the left. The final leg mainly along the Hodder is a not too strenuous river walk.
