The Hagg is a green open space adjacent to the banks of both the Rivers Balder and Tees and is perfect for quiet, open-air recreation. This trail takes the disabled visitor just a short distance from the car-park down to the waterside to a lovely tranquil spot with two benches Access to The Hagg is from Cotherstone village centre, via an access road opposite “The Fox and Hounds” public house. This steep road will take you down to the parking area and start of the trail, which is by “Hagg House”. This parking area is unmarked and can accommodate approximately 4 vehicles. The trail is approximately 200m long and is predominately tarmac but the last few metres is grassed and uneven. The gradient is 5% (1 in 20) or less, in-creasing to 8% (1 in 12) close to the water’s edge. At the riverside, there are two seats offering a quiet relaxing area to watch the river. The grassed area is open to seasonal variations.
