|Comments:||This was the first walk since returning from America's Canyonlands and it was good to get out in the countryside again. It was an easy walk with no steep ascents but the route finding was a little tricky at times. The route was originally planned from Newton but the parking is much better at Dunsop Bridge - and it is free! I was glad that the walk wasn't any longer and felt tired as I drove home - must still be experiencing some jet lag!|
