Where it meets a road, take the stile on the right to the corner gate & stile.
Turn right and follow the hedge to a stile by a house.
On Frog Moor, turn left then right to follow a path to a second house.
Walk the road for half a mile until at a bend by a gate a stile goes left.
Follow the hedgerow uphill to another stile and continue straight on to a standing stone.
Go straight on over a couple more stiles then head for the gap in the right corner of the next field.
Turn right and follow three fields to a stile in the hedge which leads to a sunken (and wet) lane.
Cross the road to the adjacent stile.
Bear left to the hedge and continue straight on for two fields then follow the stream and cross a bridge.
Turn right and go over two stiles and a bridge.
Continue straight to the busy road junction then go straight across towards Ryers Down.
Cross the roadside stream on right and make for the trig at the top of the hill for 360 degree views.
The path continues downhill to a track. Turn right to the busy Burry Green road.
Turn left then right onto the Fairyhill road. Take the stile on the left and bear right for the top corner.
Follow the hedgerow to the Hillend Road.
Turn left and after a cattle grid go right over a stream and take the broad green track back to the start.
