This route runs from Codicote Road (public road) generally southwards to end on Wheathampstead 12 bridleway, part of the Ayot Greenway. The northern part has been turned into an estate road, while the southern part is a nice grassed area with a metalled track to one side for walkers and cyclists.

At the time of the BHS 2022 Access Survey (20 Mar 22), no gates were across the path and it was signposted at each end. There was one horse stile which was nugatory as it could be walked round.
