The route starts on the public road and heads generally southwestwards then south-southwestwards to a junction with Little Hadham 10 byway, Little Hadham 12 bridleway, and the public road that runs south-southeastwards.

At the time of the BHS 2021 Access Survey (17 and 22 Oct 21), there were wooden posts to prevent wide motor vehicles but no obstructions for riders. It was signposted at each end. The route was waterlogged in parts (but this was following rain).

BHS As part of the British Horse Society's work to record paths before Path Extinguishment Day, it was spotted that Little Hadham 10 did not quite reach the road at its northern end. The last few metres were recorded as a footpath, an error introduced when the map was redrawn some years ago. An application was made in 2021 to record the gap correctly.
