The route is along a winding trail which arrives at a junction. Turn right and start a gentle climb up to the turning point, where you will find a marshal.

The return route retraces the outward route:
From the farm buildings (the turnround point) follow a winding track which proceeds on down hill to a junction of tracks. Turn left here along the track. Follow this track. Cross a bridge (a couple of planks) and continue along the track. Follow the footpath and the track across the field. At the end of the field you should see a sign. Turn right here and follow the lane. The finish is at the start of Butts Lane in Steeple Ashton.
