Starting at the free car park off Old Station Close, it's off along the Derwent to Churchtown, Darley Bridge, Oker, then on to Snitterton before heading to Bonsall. Here we pick up the Limestone Way which we follow as far as Winster.
The route then continues on to Birchover and then back via Stanton Moor before winding down through the old quarry to Stanton Woodhouse and on to Rowsley.
