This route is relatively short but can quite tricky in places. It isn’t recommend for walkers to follow it when there’s snow or ice as some stretches of the path are very irregular and rocky. The same applies for when there has been a lot of recent wet weather. A lot of the walk takes place right next to the River Greta and there are also several stream crossings where walkers will need to hop across rocks.
