DirectionsHeads south to Stanshope then down the quiet Halls Dale to reach the River Dove. Crossing this at a footbridge, allows you to reach Milldale for refreshments at the window. The route then has you climbing the East bank away from the river before dropping down to meet it again then continuing along the Dove to reach Coldeaton Bridge. The route then heads west to return to the carpark via Lode Lane.
A possible shortcut from Milldale is to ascend the steep bank found just on from the window cafe.
