This route starts on Gaddesden Lane (public road) and heads generally north-westwards to Markyate Lane (public road).

At the time of the BHS 2021/22 Access Survey (6 Jan 22), no gates were across the path and it was signposted at each end and easy to follow. Although some parts looked muddy, this was just surface mud, and it was solid underfoot. There were no gates or other obstructions across the path.
