Route Filmstrip & Description

VValidated by Fieldfare

The trail is off the A915 and there is parking opposite the Largo House Leisure Park. This is an all weather trail that leads to a seating area overlooking a river. The trail is mostly a hard compacted surface although there are sections that have been eroded by water. The majority of the path is level and within the Countryside for All Standards although there are sections of crossgradients and a prolonged stretch of path that goes up to 25% (1:4). There are regular passing places along the trail and a number of seats. For more information see Woodland Trust website - Woodland Trust, Keils Den
