Mixture of waterside walking with good views of Carsington Water and downland. You can also start from the attractive village of Kirk Ireton,but parking there is limited or from the Severn Trent Millfields ar park. Good views also on the return southward path back to Kirk Ireton.
The route follows the east bank of Carsington Water with good views and opportunities to observe the birdlife. This part can be quite busy as it is shared with cyclist. The return route from the north end of the lake is much quieter but also offers good views across the valleys to the east, finishing at the attractive village of Kirk Ireton.
Probably best to avoid weeekends, especially in summer as there are likely to be many cyclists using the route then.
