The walk is a little over 13 miles but the terrain is not at all challenging and faster progress will be made.

Join Steven and the OutdoorLads for a hike in the little visited southeast corner of County Durham.

This route explores areas now managed as nature reserves and previously the land fell within the boundaries of Blackhall Colliery. 

There are great views north and south along the cliff top section with only one steeper climb.

The half way point coincides with a good Public House so a longer stop here will give time for hot food.

The second half of the walk will be a slow descent into the magnesian limestone steep sided dene with impressive tall trees towering above the footpaths and birdlife in abundance.

The trail emerges by a viaduct to reach the coastal path with excellent views as the sun sets. 

Although a little over 13 miles this route enables a quicker pace with a majority of good clear paths and minor roads.
